Chapter Summary

Globalization, which is a consequence of increased mobility, enhanced communications, greatly increased trade and capital flows, and technological developments, opens new opportunities for sustained economic growth and development of the world economy, particularly in developing countries. In the era of globalization, governmental functions in many countries have shifted to include an increased reliance on non-state actors (profit and non-profit) for the management and delivery of health systems. One of the main challenges that NGOs have to face as a result of globalization is the lack of accountability for the right to health. Several aspects of the international obligations arising from the right to health, including the promotion of international assistance and cooperation, have been sufficiently clarified to be invoked by NGOs working to promote and protect the right.

Keywords: globalization; international obligations; NGOs; non-state actors; right to health
