Major challenges in global health such as pandemics, health inequalities, health system failures, counterfeit drugs and the rise of corporate power have called into question the role of global health governance. Has global health governance failed to keep up with the challenges of globalization? Who is responsible for global health and where does the power and influence in global health really lie? How can global health be most effectively supported and governed? In this last Global Health Lab of the season we will be seeking to address these issues by asking where’s the governance in global health? Come and join the debate to find out!
