40 years ago, activities in international health were the domain of WHO, governments (based on bilateral agreements), and non-governmental organisations.
This has changed.
Today, new players (such as the World Bank and, increasingly the World Trade Organisation) have an influence on international health.
As globalisation of trade and markets take hold, new coalitions and alliances are forming to examine and deal with direct and indirect consequences on health.
This paper examines the changing context of cooperation in international health, and voices concerns about rising potential inequalities in health, both within and between countries.
The question of how such changes will affect the actions of organisations working in international health is also addressed.
