>From Alma Ata to the Global Fund: The History of International Health Policy
Prepared by the Italian Global Health Watch
?Global Funds are like stars in the sky, you
can see them, admire them, appreciate their
abundance? but fail to touch them.?
Ministry of Health Official, Malawi
This paper traces the evolution of international
health policies and international health institutions,
starting from the birth of the World Health
Organization, the setting up of the Health for All
target at the Alma Ata conference in 1978 and the
rise of neo-liberal policies promoted by international
financial institutions from 1980 to the present.
The paper looks at different issues surrounding
public-private partnerships and the setting up
of the Global Fund to fight AIDS, Tuberculosis
and Malaria and the influence of these institutions
on the health systems in poor countries.
