"During the last decade, the global community has recognised the causal links between illhealth, poverty and weak economic growth. The effects of globalisation - growing international migration and economic interdependence - mean that the major diseases of poverty are becoming global priorities. In response, new global initiatives, involving new public and private sector partners, have been set up to provide strong international co-ordination and to mobilise additional finance and skills. OECD governments and international bodies such as the World Bank have stepped up investments in these areas. New private sector allies have entered the field – especially the philanthropic foundations and pharmaceutical companies." (Eldis)
