Global health governance in the sustainable development goals: Is it grounded in the right to health?
Global Challenges "This paper explores the extent to which global health governance in the context of the early implementation of the Sustainable Development Goals is grounded in the right to health. The essential components of the right to health in relation to global health are unpacked.
(...) These essential functions are: the production of global public goods, the management of externalities across countries, the mobilization of global solidarity, and stewardship. The paper maps the current reality of global health governance now that the post-2015 Sustainable Development Goals are beginning to be implemented.
In theory, the existing human rights legislation would enable the principles and basis
for the global governance of health beyond the premise of the state. In practice, there
is a governance gap between the human rights framework and practices in global
health and development policies." (Photo: United States Mission Geneva/flickr)
