Garrett Wallace Brown is Reader in the Department of Politics at the University of Sheffield. He is the author of Grounding Cosmopolitanism: From Kant to the Idea of a Cosmopolitan Constitution (2009) and co-editor of The Cosmopolitanism Reader (with David Held, Polity Press, 2010). Gavin Yamey leads the Evidence to Policy initiative (E2Pi), a global health policy think tank in the Global Health Group at the University of California, San Francisco. He is a frequent commentator on National Public Radio, and has published over 100 articles in peer-reviewed medical journals. Sarah Wamala is the Director-General of the Swedish National Institute of Public Health and Associate Professor at Karolinska Institute. She has published extensively on the wider determinants of health and relevance of preventive strategies and interventions, and is the editor of Globalization and Health (with Ichiro Kawachi, 2007).
This is an essential state-of-the-art guide to global health and its associated policies. It covers an extensive range of issues including the governance, financing, and architecture of global health; the influence of evidence and politics on health policy; human and national security; trans-border threats; and human rights and partnerships. In doing so, it maps out key debates and policy structures involved in global health policy, and isolates and examines new policy initiatives. This unique text provides a definitive source and specification of the key areas in the field; it builds upon the interdisciplinary experience of its three editors to examine the ethical and practical dimensions of new and current policy models and their effect on the future development of global health policy and global health. It also brings together an international team of authors, a significant number of whom are from low- and middle-income countries, to ensure an inclusive view of current policy debates. The book takes a further step from earlier research – from defining and demonstrating the associations between global mechanisms and global health, to examining health policies that influence global health. The book examines each health policy topic through two different lenses: one chapter focuses on ethical/moral questions related to that topic, while an accompanying chapter explores the more practical/empirical dimensions. In this way, the book offers a complete 360 degree overview of global health policy, its formulation and its implications.
