Summary note
"Global Health Governance offers a holistic approach to global health governance involving a variety of actors: nation states, international organizations, civic groups, and the private sector. Aginam articulates a set of proposals under the rubric of 'communitarian globalism, ' a paradigm that attempts to meet the ideals of the 'law of humanity.' These proposals project a human global health order where all of humanity is inexorably tied into a global compact, and where the health of one nation state rises and falls with the health of others." "Drawing on a wide range of disciplines and perspectives, the book concludes that international law, in striving for universal protection of human rights and human dignity, is an indispensable governance tool for restoring and promoting public health in a multilateral context."--Jacket
