Global Health Instruments



About

International health instruments play an important role as tools for shaping collective responses to global health challenges. They have been under constant development and renewal for decades to address the increasing complexity of determinants and drivers of health. Further, they are closely linked to health diplomacy and governance, two other pillars of global health – as both object and outcome of multilateral and multisectoral negotiations for health and as tools for delivering and governing health.
