In global health there is a compelling need for what we call real collaboration, the give-and-take of human beings who are so dedicated to a mission they will set aside the politics of organizations, share the difficulties, and invent solutions together. The presentation will discuss obstacles that get in the way of effective collaboration as well as some of the key ingredients that greatly increase the likelihood that a global health coalition or partnership will be successful. The Task Force for Global Health recently completed 5 years of research on the critical factors that can increase the likelihood of success for those who are launching or managing a new partnership and has published these findings in the book, Real Collaboration: What It Takes for Global Health to Succeed. The discussion and the book catalyze fresh thinking, drawing from case studies of teams struggling to combat smallpox, river blindness, polio, and other health threats.
