Contents Globalizing Public Policy -- the Health Sector -- Public Health in the Twenty-First Century: Beyond the Multilateral Institutions -- The Global Fund Experiment -- How the Fund Operates in the Global Domain -- The Local and the Global -- HIV/AIDS in China -- The Fund's Impact on China's HIV/AIDS Policy -- Public Health Policy Making in the Global Domain
Summary This is a study of governance in the emerging global domain. It traces the evolution of global public policy making by focusing on four entities: a globalizing sector (health); a global disease (HIV/AIDS); a global organization (the Global Fund); and a major sovereign state (China). A qualitative study situated in the interdisciplinary field of science and technology studies, the book starts by explaining how 'world responsibility' emerges for some things, like HIV/AIDS. It then demonstrates how a newly emergent global regime manages to shore up authority and legitimacy in the global domain. Finally, it follows the reach of this global regime into national policy making and shows how that interaction brings about convergence on global norms in an area as highly contested as HIV/AIDS policy. The study will be interesting to scholars and graduate students in political science and international relations, public health and public policy, Asian/ China studies, and studies of science & society. It will also appeal to practitioners in the domains of global health and international development more generally
"How do certain policy issues come to be regarded as 'global'? Whose responsibility is it to address them? Why do new global organizations emerge, and how do they interact with the existing system of national and international policy making? This book takes a unique approach to these questions by focusing on four entities: a globalizing sector (health), a global disease (HIV/AIDS), a global organization (the Global Fund), and a major sovereign nation (China). In investigating the interplay among these four entities, Szlezák asks and investigates how can we design a system of global governance that is both fair and effective"-- Provided by publisher
