Mapping Asian Actors’ Engagements in Global Health Governance

The Global Health Centre has contributed to the larger project on Global Governance coordinated by the Lee Kuan Yew School of Public Policy at the National University of Singapore by conducting a research study mapping the contemporary influence of Asian actors in negotiations of Global Health Governance (GHG). The objectives of this research study are reviewing the representation of Asian actors in contemporary literature, identifying the role of Asian actors within selected key institutions involved in global health governance agenda-setting, and analysing the policies and influences of Asian nation-states on global health. This qualitative research project will be based on a review of institutional publications as well as interviews with relevant health attachés and representatives of select Geneva-based organizations involved in global health governance agenda setting (i.e. the World Health Organization, UNAIDS, the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis, and Malaria; the World Economic Forum; World Trade Organization TRIPS Council; GAVI Alliance).
