In and increasingly globalised world with new cross-border threats to public health and widening disparities between populations, civil society actors are challenging the existing structures of global health policies. Like its critically acclaimed predecessors, this third volume of Global Health Watch covers a comprehensive range of topics, including access to medicines, mental health, water and sanitation, nutrition, and war and conflict. Unlike most documentations of global health, it also draws attention to the politics of global health and the policies and actions of key actors.
