"The plethora of organizations and agencies bringing new funding, knowledge of best practices, and accountability to improving global health has created a crisis in governance of global health. In an original and incisive multilevel analysis of both principles and practice, Nicole A. Szlezak shows how the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria created a new paradigm for governance and engaging with countries. She explores the tensions in interactions such as the Fund's with China and draws important lessons on what contributes to success. This is an important work for anyone interested in global health governance and institutions."

"Global health governance is indeed at a crossroads with many diverse players, who often have conflicting agendas. This is a timely and important book, which looks at contemporary global health governance through an analysis of the important interfaces between a major global health initiative and a sovereign state in dealing with a major disease. It comes up with interesting findings and provides valuable insights into what the future might hold for more effective and equitable modes of global health governance."
Tikki Pang, visiting professor, National University of Singapore and former director, Research Policy and Cooperation, WHO, Geneva
'The globalization of world affairs has brought with it extraordinary changes in the nature of global governance its institutions, its agents, and its ambitions. Dr. Szlezak's integration of relevant theory and meticulous empirical research provides valuable insights on these transformations and their implications not only for health, but for also for policy domains ranging from agriculture to energy in which science, politics and human aspirations to do better come together on the global stage.' - William C. Clark, Harvey Brooks Professor of International Science, John F. Kennedy School of Government, Harvard University
