In an increasingly globalised world with new cross-border threats to health, widening disparities in both health and access to health care, and an unacceptable level of human suffering and premature mortality in developing countries, civil society actors are asking, why is so little progress being made by global health actors? This edition covers access to medicine, mental health, water and sanitation, war and conflict, and analyses key actors in health: US foreign assistance, Gates Foundation, World Bank, WHO, and the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria.
