As part of the online dissemination plan at the Public Health department of ITM, we have recently set up a website to support an INCO-GHI project that has entered its last phase in 2012. This EU-funded research project in four Southern African countries (Angola, Lesotho, Mozambique and South Africa) aims to understand how the rise of global health initiatives has impacted the architecture of development partnerships and country-level health systems’ functions. The core of the study is to research how changes in development partnerships practices and the emergence of Global Health Initiatives (GHIs) have impacted on health systems at the global, national and district level. The study is focusing on the effects of several large GHIs (PEPFAR, Global Fund, …) on aid recipient sub-Saharan African countries.

Our latest post features Gorik Ooms who gave a presentation at the AIDS 2012 conference in Washington on “Future Global Priorities or Beyond 2015.” As the “fortune teller” of a session entitled Show Me the Money: Political Commitment, Resources and Pricing he tried to answer what will happen after 2015, and pondered the possible impact of an overall health goal, Universal Health Coverage, as opposed to the current three health-related MDGs. Will this be good news or bad news for the fight against HIV? Watch his presentation to find out.
