Multi-stakeholder diplomacy is evolving rapidly, not only as a key cross-cutting strategic component in international relations, but also by the magnitude of actors involved in global health. A range of stakeholders from governments, civil society organisations and the private sector play influential roles at varying stages and levels of global health diplomacy. This complexity requires a better analysis and assessment of the interests and needs of each stakeholder, and new leadership skills to act effectively in such diverse environments.
