The Legitimacy of Global Health Governance examines organisations which deal with global health governance, differing from intergovernmental organisations such as the WHO. It looks at the new governance forms these organisations represent, showing that they have unprecedented characteristics in terms of their organisational features and their approach to achieving outcomes.How is the legitimacy of these organisations validated if they do not use existing intergovernmental models? In order to address this key question, the book traces the evolution of governance in the global health arena, and explains the role of stakeholders in the legitimization process. It analyses stakeholders' priorities in terms of what constitutes good, appropriate and 'legitimate' governance, and how they view organisations with respect to these priorities.Three case studies of organisations dealing with HIV / AIDS, tuberculosis and malaria, provide a detailed mapping of the activities and structures of global health governance organisations. The Legitimacy of Global Health Governance will be of interest to students and scholars of global health issues and politics, and globalization.
