Global Politics of Health Reform in Africa is about how participation and performance (also known as results based funding) are used to shape health reform in African countries and the role of African actors, global policy elites and international donors within these processes. Drawing on extensive qualitative research with African actors in South Africa, Tanzania and Zambia, and global health institutions such as the World Bank, WHO and Global Fund in Geneva and Washington DC, this book is a must read for policy makers, practitioners and researchers interested in the politics of health system reform, the problems of performance and results based financing, and the ability of African actors to shape African health system reform. It will be of interest to students and academics working in the fields of: Global Health Governance and Health Policy, Global Governance, Development, and Africa and International Politics.
