Description:

The paper looks at how Thomas and Weber (2004) in their article "The Politics of Global Health Governance: Whatever Happened to 'Health for All by the Year 2000'?" take a critical approach to global health governance (GHG) and its implementation. The paper describes how the researchers have explored and analyzed the changing nature of GHG from the Alma Ata conference of 1978 to the Okinawa G8 summit of 2000. The paper discusses how the researchers have noted that over this time scale, GHG shifted from being fairly open and based in multilateral UN-forums, to formalized and narrowly-defined policies of neoliberal government institutions of the 1980s, to the present, where GHG fails to address the problem of socioeconomic inequality and third world health dangers.
