The Lancet - UiO Commission on Global Governance for Health

About the Commission

Many drivers of ill health lie beyond the control of national governments and, most often, also outside the realms of the health sector. How can global governance processes outside the health system better protect and promote the health of the world’s populations? This is a question The Lancet - University of Oslo Commission on Global Governance for Health addresses in its report: The Political Origins of Health Inequity: Prospects for Change.
