This paper on health cooperation and its relevance, legitimacy and effectiveness was discussed at the MMI workshop “Health cooperation beyond aid” in Berlin, on 29 September 2016, and published afterwards.

The current document is not intended to be a position paper representing a homogeneous view of the Network. It is a discussion paper that feeds a core activity of the MMI Network; to serve as a platform for critical reflection on the role and future direction of development cooperation for health.

We invite the members of the MMI working group on Effective Health Cooperation (MMI EHC) and other Network members and partners to engage in this process.

Martin Leschhorn, MMI EHC working group coordinator
