    This course offers an improved understanding of the roles and responsibilities of the traditional and emerging actors in global health. The field of global health is now populated by “multiple actors” and influenced by “diverse interests”. These multiple actors and diverse interests have complicated the task of the global health epistemic and policy communities in articulating effective governance approaches to global health issues. Emerging global health challenges require policy responses involving nation-states, inter-governmental organizations (WHO, FAO, World Bank, UNAIDS, etc), businesses and corporations (pharmaceutical and food companies), and NGOs and civil society (Médecins Sans Frontières – Doctors without Borders, and others), charitable foundations (Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, and others), and even individuals (celebrity diplomacy). In the 21st century, ‘health diplomacy’ is increasingly driven by trends outside the health sector: trade and investment in goods and services, migration, and globalization of the world economy. Health diplomacy is no longer limited to the official relations and interactions between two or more countries. It now involves many other actors beyond nation-states.
