GEG’s work in global health governance fosters research and debate into how the global health system can better serve the needs of people in developing countries.

Our research focuses on two issues:

  1. The governance of international organisations in health, including the World Health Organization, the World Bank, and the newer health initiatives
  2. The politics of health financing and health programmes in developing countries and the role of international donor organisations
