"We are in transition from what seemed a relatively reliable state defined and structured world of international health to a diffuse political space of global health in which new forms of distributed power and new patterns of power sharing emerge….even the most cursory analysis of global health governance shows that existing mechanisms of governance and resource flows are insufficient to address the problems at stake and to generate the political will necessary for action."
Exploring the expanded responsibility for health within society has always
been at the core of Ilona Kickbusch´s work and she has pushed the agenda both in her academic work and her work at the WHO. She was one of the first to apply concepts of global governance to the global health arena. She is now exploring the health governance challenges arising from the digital transformation. www.governinghealthfutures2030.org
Her most recent contribution on Global Health Governance (with Austin Liu) with a view to the major changes that global health is presently undergoing can be found in the Governance Report 2019 “HealthGovernance” by the Hertie School of Governance, Berlin.
