    How can national governments and international agencies respond to global challenges of health and social well being? Despite the fact that health has improved during the last century in many parts of the world health levels are stagnant and even declining due to new forms of poverty, environmental problems or political instability. This does not only effect populations in developing countries and emerging markets but as well growing numbers of marginalized groups in the industrialized world. Here demographic aging and rising health care costs threaten national pension funds and health care insurance systems. These forces render any clear-cut distinction between “developed” and “developing” worlds obsolete, and will affect the health of people throughout the twenty-first century. The workshops will focus on the production of evidence, on negotiating access to health care and on new forms of incorporating politics of locality in national and international health care regimes.
