One may think that this does not connect to us or influence us, but they are wrong. The world is now a global village, and any health epidemic or illness can impact us directly or indirectly. After going through the book, I was able to understand the functioning of global health organizations and how they set their priorities, functioning of PPP public-private partnerships and the various challenges they face in ensuring a healthier world. I appreciate the fact that Chelsea and Devi Sridhar have given this subject the due respect and tried to present facts and not force their opinion on us.
This is not a book for regular guys, but for those who are interested in reading topics that affect us at the macro level. Worth spending time on this book. Porsha , Sep 19, Boring Stuff. Have you ever seen a thesis paper? Also, do not go by the title, there is no secret stuff or conspiracy theory discussed here. Chelsea Clinton only tries to ask biased questions which could hint at collusion between various agencies. The only conspiracy theory if you can say so that you could find in the book is when authors hint that the global economy could be under the control of those people who control global health.
I read this book twice or thrice thinking that I might have missed the point here or there since the book was not making sense to me.

- Advances in Nonlinear Speech Processing: 5th International Conference on Nonlinear Speech Processing, NOLISP 2011, Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, Spain, November 7-9, 2011. Proceedings;

Well, I was wrong. I did not miss anything. This book is a sheer waste of money. Put your hard-earned money to much better use than buying this book. One interesting thing I noted in the book was that there was no mention of the Clinton Foundation.
Governing Global Health: Who Runs the World and Why?
I think it is because they are tightfisted when it comes to spending money on global health causes. Now you know why I gave this book one star. Still trying to understand why Chelsea wrote this book. I was "gifted" this book during a function in my office. Wanting to look pleased and hide the disappointment of getting a book as a gift, I smiled and gulped my disappointment down.
The next Saturday, having nothing to do and getting bored, I tried to read the book. The first three pages were interesting, but after that, it started going downhill. I read the book and reread it and then reread after a gap of 10 days. I did not do this because I loved the book, but because I could not understand a single word that was written in it. I think the authors tried to pull a fast one but failed terribly in their attempt.
Moral of the story: Chelsea Clinton is a pathetic writer, and one should not buy any book written by her.
An excellent overview. Governing Global Health: Who Runs the World and Why is a book that should be read by all those who are in the field of healthcare. The book is not your regular flowery stuff. It is an attempt to see the world health through eyes of academicians — How various systems works, its pros, cons, success rates, failure rates, etc. BERT , Aug 29, A good attempt. Hats off to the authors for an excellent attempt.
The book talks about governance in major health organizations globally. Though the subjects were very few, I felt the data which has been provided could be extrapolated onto a bigger data set. It would be a lot better if the authors publish an updated version of this book on a regular basis.

Once again, a good attempt. Book Summary The past few decades have seen a massive increase in the number of international organizations focusing on global health. These organizations may be national, regional, international, or even non-state organizations-like Medicins Sans Frontieres. One of the more important recent trends in global health governance, though, has been the rise of public-private partnerships PPPs where private non-governmental organizations, for-profit enterprises, and various other social entrepreneurs work hand-in-hand with governments to combat specific maladies.
A primary driver for this development is the widespread belief that by joining together, PPPs will attack health problems and fund shared efforts more effectively than other systems. As Chelsea Clinton and Devi Sridhar show in Governing Global Health , these partnerships are not only important for combating infectious diseases; they also provide models for developing solutions to a host of other serious global health challenges and questions beyond health.
