Abstract

Cost-effective solutions already exist for many of the greatest global health challenges. Yet a gap is present between the health outcomes we can theoretically achieve and those we are actually achieving. In the absence of a single global government, there is a need for effective global governance in order to address transnational threats and inequalities. In order to achieve this we must understand what strategies can actually achieve global collective action, under what conditions, at what cost, and with what risks and trade-offs? Answering these important questions requires a science of global strategy.

Keywords: global health, global governance, health gap, global collectiveaction, transnational threats, health security, global government, global strategy
