The Globalization of Health Care

Oxford University Press

This chapter reports shared health governance (SHG) as a theory of global health governance (GHG). It demonstrates how SHG advantageously allocates responsibility based on the specific duties and effectiveness of different actors. The social agreement model underlines public deliberation, responsible leadership, and mass communication. It also depends on popular sovereignty and political leadership to attain agreement on the common good. Values, ideas, and norms play an important role in GHG. Under GHG as SHG, global health policy must indicate health agency-enhancing processes. The chapter shows that the Kenyan Office of International Health Relations and Mexican Office of International Affairs are consistent with GHG as SHG. They visualize a way for the state to manage up and across and coordinate its efforts in global health. Moreover, global health actors should work together with state actors and institutions to correct and avoid global health injustices through a framework of SHG resting on shared ethical commitments.

Keywords:   shared health governance, global health governance, social agreement model, global health policy, Kenyan Office of International Health Relations, Mexican Office of International Affairs
