About this book

This direct, accessible guide uses a human rights perspective to define effectiveness in aid delivery and offer a robust framework for creating sustainable health programs and projects and assessing their progress. Geared toward hands-on professionals in such critical areas as food aid, maternal health, and disease control, it lays out challenges and solutions related to funding, planning, and complexity as individual projects feed into and impact larger health and development systems. Contributors clarify optimum roles of government, academia, NGOs, community organizations, and the private sector in aid delivery to inspire readers' broader and deeper uses of teamwork, communication, and imagination. Throughout, the guiding principles of justice, equity, and respect that underlie foundational documents such as the Millennium Declaration inform this visionary work.

 

Included in the coverage:

 

  • Assessing the effectiveness of health projects.
  • Scaling-up of high-impact interventions.
  • Aid effectiveness and private sector health organizations.
  • When charity destroys dignity and sustainability.
  • Effective conversations in global health projects.
  • Lessons from the field on sustainability and effectiveness.

 

For professionals in global health and development, Aid Effectiveness in Global Health is a trusted and encouraging mentor. This volume gives its readers the necessary logistical and attitudinal tools to bring about lasting change, and shows how to use them meaningfully in both the short term and the long run.

 

Reviews

“This is a multi-author book aimed at health professionals working in global health, who wish to improve the effectiveness of their work. It identifies measures of aid effectiveness and how its progress can be monitored. … My overall impression of this book is that it is useful and very informative, full of important and relevant guidance predicated on the experience of various contributors … .” (Shirley Hodgson, Medicine Conflict and Survival, Vol. 31 (3-4), 2015)
