New players and cross-border collaborations have emerged to solve some of the worlds most daunting public health problems, resulting in a multitude of global health care innovations across different institutional and cultural settings. With these innovations often comes the underlying assumption that we can find universal solutions if only we can overcome the challenges posed by different contexts. Making Global Health Care Innovations Work is the first book that studies this tension between universal and localized health care innovations and provides a diverse account on how global health care innovations are and can be connected to local practices. Using approaches from science and technology studies (STS), innovation studies, development studies, and public health, the book contributes to the discussion on standardization and localization of global health innovations.
