A changing nature of health cooperation and the increasing prominence of global health in international politics affects how we (could) define international health cooperation. The sustainable development (SDG) agenda requires in itself a transformative change of working to attain the health goals. In addition, governments and policy-makers take a paradigm shift from international to global health, and seem to put (health) cooperation beyond aid.
- Part I: Relevance, legitimacy and effectiveness of (health) development cooperation in an SDG era? Heterogeneous approach to health cooperation. Introduced by Thomas Schwarz, MMI and moderated by Tim Roosen, Be-cause health/ITM
- Part II: Linking health cooperation to a broader foreign policy – a transformative approach to health? Introduced by Lies Steurs, Ghent University and moderated by Remco van der Pas, ITM
