Abstract

In this paper we will explore issues related to the governance of inter-organizational
relationships in the field of global health - taking the multi-layered response to the 2014 West African Ebola
Outbreak as our point of departure. We note that, ideally organizations engaged in
global health activity would have a clear set of governance rules that would guide
their behaviours, and set expectations for collaborating with other organizations,
though this is rarely the case. More broadly, we highlight that there is no overarching
set of principles that would cover all the possible ways in which collaborations can
take place. We conclude by suggesting some principles to guide collaboration
between organizations engaged in global health in the future.
