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. Yet, collaborations in global health often fall short of what they hope to achieve. The difficulty comes in translating the attitude and concept of collaboration into concrete applications. The Task Force for Global Health with the support of Milbank Memorial Fund is excited to invite participants to the book launch of Real Collaboration: What It Takes for Global Health to Succeed. Essential reading for those who work in global health, this practical handbook focuses on what might be the most important lesson of the last fifty years: that collaboration is the best way to make health resources count for disadvantaged people around the world. Designed as a learning resource to catalyze fresh thinking, Real Collaboration draws from case studies of teams struggling to combat smallpox, river blindness, polio, and other health threats. In honest appraisals, participants share their missteps as well as their successes. Based on these stories, as well as on analyses of many other enterprises, this accessible, engaging book distills the critical factors that can increase the likelihood of success for those who are launching or managing a new partnership. The reception attendees will be able to learn more about the book and the principles it presents directly from two of its authors, Mark Rosenberg and Elisabeth Hayes.
