The Limits of Control: The Accountability of Foundations and Partnerships in Global Health

  • Elena Hesselmann
Part of the International Political Economy Series book series (IPES)


Partnerships and foundations play increasingly important roles in global health governance, as argued and shown throughout this book. The nature of their activities varies widely, and these activities can be found at all stages of policy-making: they contribute to knowledge accumulation, agenda- and rule-setting, resource mobilisation and allocation, and implementation. Consequently, partnerships and foundations exert power in various ways: in a material sense, as they spend money and run programmes; at an ideational level, as they establish policies, shape agendas, and claim legitimacy.
