The Independent Panel on Global Governance for Health

The Independent Panel on Global Governance for Health is a collaborative initiative between the University of Oslo and The Lancet, following the recommendations of The Lancet-University of Oslo Commission on Global Governance for Health, which reported in February 2014. The objective of the Panel is to provide evidence, based on high quality, independent research and analysis, which can be used to inform and impact on political processes that influence global health. The Panel will focus on a different topic each year and publish their findings annually in The Lancet. The research will provide evidence regarding how current global governance arrangements across different policy sectors cause (or fail to resolve) inequitable health outcomes. Members of the Panel are independent experts within the areas of global governance, trade, law and development. The Panel Secretariat is hosted by The Centre for Development and the Environment (SUM), at the University of Oslo, Norway.
