Abstract / Description of output

Global health is increasingly reliant on financial markets. The ongoing financialisation of global health raises new questions of governance, which we expect to affect policy makers as much as doctors, nurses and patients in the years to come. In this editorial, we will first explain what is meant by financialisation, then illustrate its nature in the field of global healthviathree examples, and end by highlighting some of the governance issues that the financialisation of global health raises.
