Global health governance is evolving as new stakeholders (e.g. organizations and networks) engage, and expand their resources, knowledge, and influence. As globalization spreads and becomes more entrenched, it presents new health risks and requirements, while also providing new opportunities, solutions, and innovative mechanisms for communication and cooperation.
