Abstract and Keywords

The so-called golden era of global health, spanning approximately 1998–2008 was marked not only by an increase in funding and political attention, but arguably by a radical change in the processes of global health policy making. The establishment and consolidation of new global health organizations during this era has been analysed primarily from the perspective of International Relations and questions surrounding legitimate governance beyond the state. Far less attention has been paid to the internal structures and cultures of these new organizations. This includes how they create and reflect new standards of transnational administration, management, and oversight, such as integration of state and non-state actors, formalized input from technical and financial committees, and organizational structures that separate multiple levels of oversight and accountability. This chapter argues for greater attention to be paid to these structural features of global health organizations from a multi-disciplinary perspective incorporating public administration, corporate governance, and organizational sociology.

Keywords: corporate governance, global health governance, organizational culture, organizational sociology, transnational administration, World Health Organization
