In the last decade, the interface between foreign policy, economics and health has become more prominent, and diplomacy is undergoing profound changes to respond to new emerging needs. Health ministries, specialised UN agencies and non-governmental organisations have now been joined by new actors, such as public–private partnerships, mixed entities with governmental and private members, foundations, as well as the private sector. These actors are all shaping and contributing to the global health arena. Switzerland, and in particular Geneva, plays an important role in health policy development, being one of the world’s major centres for diplomacy, international and humanitarian affairs. The Global Health Centre contributes to a stronger interface between Swiss academia and international organisations. It aims to analyse and make more visible the role of Switzerland in global health governance.
