Framing and global health governance: Key findings

Colin John McInnes, Kelley Lee

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Despite widespread agreement that collective action to address shared health challenges across countries is desirable and necessary, the realm of global health governance (GHG) has remained highly problematic. A key reason for this is the manner in which health issues are presented (‘framed’). Because multiple frames are operating simultaneously, confusion and a range of competing policy recommendations and priorities result. Drawing on the previous papers in this Special Supplement, these key findings explore how health issues are framed, what makes a framing successful, what frames are used for and what effects framing has.
