This Note examines the extent of health inequalities within and between countries and analyses ways in which global health partnerships (GHPs) – an innovative and important vehicle for international cooperation – can alleviate health inequality so as to support developing countries in achieving internationally agreed goals in health, including the health-related Millennium Development Goals (MDGs).

The international community has played an active role and new approaches for development cooperation—the global health partnerships—have emerged, bringing in new actors and additional resources.
