Jonathan Garcia received his doctorate from Mailman School of Public Health at Columbia University and postdoctoral training at the Yale School of Public Health. He uses innovative and participatory methods to develop public health interventions and inform the implementation of clinical trials. He works both globally and domestically on health disparities that emerge at the intersection of sexuality, gender and race. His work has focused on devising community-led approaches to social inclusion, HIV prevention, and Hepatitis C treatment access, especially among Latinos and LGBT populations. He maintains key partnerships in Brazil, Peru and India.

The Routledge Handbook on the Politics of Global Health


This volume critically evaluates how the global health industry has evolved and how the interests of diverse political and economic stakeholders are shaping the context of a rapidly changing institutional landscape. Bringing together leading authors from across the world, the Handbook’s eight sections explore:

  • Critical perspectives on global health
  • Globalization, neoliberalism, and health systems
  • The changing shape of global health governance
  • Development assistance and the politics of global health
  • Scale-up, scale-down, and the sustainability of global health programs
  • Intellectual property rights, trade relations, and global health
  • Humanitarian emergencies and global health politics
  • Human rights, social justice, and global health

The Routledge Handbook on the Politics of Global Health addresses both the emerging issues and conceptualizations of the political strategies, policy-making processes, and global governance of global health, along with expanding upon and highlighting the critical priorities in this rapidly evolving field. It provides an authoritative overview for students, practitioners, researchers, and policymakers working in or concerned with the politics of public health around the globe.
