Health Diplomacy

 Global Health Diplomacy (GHD) is the practice by which governments and non-state actors attempt to coordinate global policy solutions to improve global health.

Health diplomacy division of the Institute focuses on strengthening civil society’s ability to advocate for the right to health, as well as fortifying the mechanisms to achieve this right—including inclusive participation, accountability, and equality.

The Declaration of Human Rights articulates the right to adequate health in Article 25: “Everyone has the right to a standard of living adequate for the health and well-being of himself and of his family, including food, clothing, housing and medical care…”
This year it is 75 years since the declaration was signed.
For as of 2021, more than half of people globally were not covered by essential health services.
The 2019 United Nations Political Declaration on Universal Health Coverage reaffirms the human right to health.

Yet, more than 75 years after the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, with so many states failing to deliver quality health services to all, will still another commitment to the right to health make a difference?

Our mission 
We promote inclusive participation, equality, and accountability for advancing the right to health.

The main goals of health diplomacy division of the Institute are:

1) improved relations between states and a commitment of a wide range of actors to work together to improve health;

2) achievement of outcomes that are deemed fair and support the goals of reducing poverty and increasing equity. 

e-Learning Courses

e-Learning Course on Cross-Programmatic Efficiency Analysis

This module on Cross-Programmatic Efficiency Analysis will provide you with an approach to analysing efficiency across health programmes within a health system. Using WHO’s System-wide approach to analysing efficiency across health programmes, you will learn how to unpack health programmes based on their common health system functions – financing, governance, service delivery, and creating resources (e.g. supply chain, information systems, health workers) – to understand how they interact with one another and the overall system, and where inefficiencies can be identified.  These cross-programmatic inefficiencies include duplications or misalignments across core health system functions.

Global Health Diplomacy

Having completed this course, learners will be able to:

Describe and analyze the opportunities, challenges and limits of Global Health Diplomacy. Examine the diplomatic, financial, and geopolitical context that underlies global health decision-making. Explain the role of the many players in the space, including governments, philanthropists, and multilateral institutions . Course Objective The field of global health is often thought of purely in medical or public health terms, but there are important geopolitical and policy dimensions of global health that underlie programmatic responses to global health challenges. By completing this course, learners will be able to explain the specific institutions and initiatives that are fundamental to current global health diplomacy activities and functions, and how these influence global health outcomes. Learners will further be able to summarize real-world examples where global health diplomacy either helped or limited global health outcomes, and explain the reasons for those outcomes.


Non-state actors engagement in policy process through public diplomacy tools

Policy Process provides a systematic way to develop policies that can help address public problems. The policy process includes six domains, including non-state actors engagement as key stakeholders. Non-state actors include organizations and individuals that are not affiliated with, directed by, or funded through the government. 

Although the policy cycle may appear to be an ordered process that begins at one point and ends at another, policy-making can begin or be abandoned or altered at any point of the cycle.

Identify need steps in the development of a policy and help us to develop it.There is a recognised set of stages that policy development has to go through before a bill can be presented to parliament. This can take some time and is likely to involve (formal or informal) consultation with concerned stakeholders before the bill is drafted. The bill may also be amended by legislators, providing additional avenues by which interested parties can influence its content.
Note the different opportunities for non-state stakeholders to influence policy-making that each channel offers.

How to get involved?

Activities in parliamentary diplomacy may focus on broader systemic or regulatory issues, facilitating greater appreciation of the role of non-state actors in public diplomacy and publicizing their critical role in the maintenance of a healthy democracy. 
Activities may also focus on providing support on building the capacity of professionals to conduct objective, high-quality reporting through training, workshops, or even the development of new tools to support their work.

Members are encouraged to share their own research and analysis, organize around specific discussions or initiatives, and engage with existing projects, events and research.
