Negotiating health development

Drager N., McClintock E., Moffitt M. Negotiating Health Development: A Guide for Practitioners. Geneva, Switzerland: Conflict Management Group and World Health Organization, 2000, 89p.

This extremely useful book is designed to be used at any stage in the health development process by anyone who may wish to influence some aspect of that process. While there is no uniform ‘fix’ in this book, the reader will find suggested tools, frameworks, processes, and questions. Because there are some common challenges when dealing with health related issues in developing countries, the reader will find many of the strategies and analysis useful in virtually every circumstance. The approach is based on the training of officials from over 40 developing countries and includes examples of their very real experiences that will help the reader grapple with their own contexts.
