IFGH 2010: Partnership and The Aid Triangle

Category:
November 30, 2010

Genuine partnership is crucial for just and effective governance of global health research and intervention. However, much research and intervention in low income countries is facilitated through international aid which is mediated through complex and sometimes destructive human dynamics.

We describe a triangular relationship between dominance, justice and identify and how these factors may play out in aid projects.

Using the example of the dual-salary system that exists between internationally and locally salaried aid workers, we report on the effects of such a system on work attitudes and capacity building across 6 low and middle income countries: Malawi, Uganda, China, India, Solomon Islands and Papua New Guinea.

The implication of the Aid Triangle model and the above results are discussed in terms of promoting more effective capacity building in aid projects that seek to promote partnership in global health.
