Content

Diplomacy is undergoing profound changes in the 21st century – and global health is one of the areas in which this is most manifest. The negotiation processes that shape and manage the global policy environment for health are increasingly not only conducted between public health experts representing health ministries of nation states but include many other major players at the national level and in the global arena. These include new philanthropies and public-private partnerships. As health moves beyond its purely technical realm to become an ever more critical element in foreign policy, security policy and trade agreements, new skills are needed to negotiate global regimes and international agreements and treaties and to maintain relations with a wide range of actors. The summer course will focus on health diplomacy as it relates to health issues that cross national boundaries and are global in nature, will discuss the challenges it faces and how they have been addressed by different groups and at different levels of governance.

Course Highlights: Deliberations on Intellectual Property Rights, The Framework Convention on Tobacco Control, the International Health Regulations, the creation of new finance mechanisms such as the Global Fund for Aids, Tuberculosis and Malaria or UNITAID, as well as the response to SARS and Avian Flu are cases in point and will provide the real-life backdrop to the discussions. The programme will also discuss approaches to policy coherence at the national level, such as “national global health strategies” and at the level of regional organisations.

Next Beginning June 6-10, 2011

Course Title "Negotiating health in the 21st century: Global Health Governance in Fragile States"
Institution Geneva: Graduate Institute of International Studies (IHEID)

Type Conference
Topics Public/Global Health: International Health Issues and Development
Public/Global Health: Health Policy and Planning
Language English
Degree, Credits  
Location Auditorium Jacques -Freymond, Geneva (Switzerland)
Objectives/
Content

The governance role of the modern nation-state is not only to ensure a well functioning democracy and the security of the country but also to provide access to public goods and social welfare, such as education and health. In weak or failed states, these ‘traditional’ state functions very often cannot be guaranteed and, consequently, new forms of provision emerge. Non-governmental and hybrid actors become important players and often take over typical state functions to ensure that basic services are delivered.

The international community has a critical impact on these governance regimes. This often complex landscape of very different actors leads to a multitude of cooperation models among stakeholders which are not hierarchically determined but rather characterized through ‘bargaining’ and negotiation. The activities of the involved actors may also be influenced by their social, economic, and political interests and thereby reinforcing rather than resolving conflicts, with dramatic consequences for health care delivery, for example.

Nevertheless, negotiation processes in conflict and other crisis situations take many forms and are present at all levels. These include formal and informal; open and hidden; local, national, regional and international – be it for example between the conflict parties, local and international mediators or facilitators, donors or civil society. The success of these negotiations depends on, inter alia, the balance of power, the political will, the structure and actors of the negotiation process. The negotiations may have a direct positive impact on the health status of the population but could also lead to further weakening the state, its administrative processes, or to a case-to-case approach benefiting a few rather than a ‘universal right for all’ approach.

The symposium will focus on:

  • Governance regimes existing in weak and failed states, the multitude of actors including donors, their respective roles and cooperation models influencing the health status of the population;
  • Negotiation processes at the national and international levels impacting health governance in weak or failed states;
  • The positioning of health in conflict situations in relation to issues of foreign policy, security, migration, human rights, trade, development, and peace-building.

Prominent speakers will reflect on these issues from a practical and research perspective. The ensuing debate between diplomats, health experts and academics will aim to examine the characteristics of weak and failed states that impact on health and how different actors and global health initiatives can better health in these including improving the health governance structures in these states.

A report on the results of the symposium will be prepared and disseminated widely.

Content

Dans les organisations à but non lucratif, la gestion de projets est devenue exigeante. Tout en respectant leur engagement solidaire, les acteurs du développement doivent être en mesure de définir stratégiquement leur champs d'action et de démontrer leur efficacité.

La gestion stratégique nécessite par ailleurs un lien direct et une réflexion constante entre les aspects opérationnels et financiers d'une action de développement. Ce lien doit être fait pendant toutes les phases du cycle d'un projet, car la question de l'efficience, donc du rapport entre les résultats visés et leurs coûts, se pose tant lors de l'identification d'un projet que lors de son suivi et de son évaluation.

Enfin, il n'est pas suffisant d'avoir des bons outils de gestion opérationnels et financiers: encore faut-il s'assurer que les projets aient un impact positif à long terme. Le 3ème module vise à introduire les techniques nécessaires pour atteindre ce dernier objectif.

Les participants peuvent suivre un ou plusieurs modules à choix.
Module 1: Défis et nouvelles exigences de la gestion stratégique de projets de développement
Module 2: La dimension financière de la gestion stratégique de projets de développement
Module 3: Introduction aux techniques d'évaluation d'impact de projets de développement

Intellectual property issues have come to play an increasingly important role in discussions of national and global health problems. Yet, individuals whose primary expertise is health or diplomacy may find these discussions inaccessible because they lack a sufficient understanding of basic intellectual property concepts and their relationship to global public health. The purpose of this course is to help fill this gap by exploring current debates about health-related aspects of intellectual property from a global public health perspective. A key goal of the course will be to develop concrete tools for implementing the World Health Organization’s Global Strategy and Plan of Action on Public Health, Innovation, and Intellectual Property.

Topics:
* Current and emerging issues in intellectual property and global public health
* TRIPS and the Doha Declaration
* Alternative mechanisms for incentivizing the development of treatments for diseases that predominantly affect developing countries
* The problem of counterfeiting
* Industry perspectives on IP and global public health
* Technology transfer and open access to knowledge

* Alumni from the Executive Course on Global Health Diplomacy
* Professionals working on issues related to pharmaceutical innovation and access to medicines from:
