Health interregionalism in combating communicable diseases

EU cooperation with ASEAN and the African Union

Vincent Rollet

English abstract: This last decade, regional organizations progressively became unavoidable actors of regional health governance and have been supported by some global health actors to strengthen such a role. Among these actors, the European Union (EU) is the only regional organization that implements health initiatives in cooperation with its regional counterparts. This article focuses on such “health interregionalism” toward Southeast Asia and Africa and in the field of communicable diseases, with the main objective of assessing its nature and identifying its main functions. It concludes that although appreciated and needed, the EU’s health interregionalism should better reflect the EU’s experience in regional health governance in order to represent a unique instrument of development aid and an added value for regional organizations.

Spanish abstract: En el último decenio, las organizaciones regionales se han convertido progresivamente en actores inevitables de la gobernanza regional de la salud, recibiendo el apoyo de actores mundiales para fortalecer esa función. Entre éstos, la Unión Europea (UE) es la única organización regional que implementa iniciativas de salud en cooperación con sus contrapartes regionales. Este artículo se centra en este ““interregionalismo en salud”” hacia el sudeste asiático y África y en el ámbito de las enfermedades transmisibles, con el objetivo de evaluar su naturaleza e identificar sus principales funciones. Concluye que el interregionalismo en salud de la UE debería reflejar mejor su experiencia en materia de gobernanza regional de la salud, al representar un instrumento único de ayuda al desarrollo y un valor añadido para las organizaciones regionales.

French abstract: Au cours de la dernière décennie, les organisations régionales sont progressivement devenues des acteurs incontournables de la gouvernance régionale de la santé et ont été soutenues par certains acteurs mondiaux. Parmi ces acteurs, l’Union européenne (UE) est la seule organisation régionale qui mette en oeuvre des initiatives en matière de santé en coopération avec ses homologues régionaux. L’article se concentre sur cet «interrégionalisme en matière de santé» vers l’Asie du Sud-Est et l’Afrique dans le domaine des maladies transmissibles, afin d’évaluer sa nature et d’identifier ses principales fonctions. Il conclut que, bien qu’apprécié et nécessaire, l’interrégionalisme devrait mieux refléter l’expérience de l’UE en matière de gouvernance de santé régionale afin de représenter un instrument unique d’aide au développement et une valeur ajoutée pour les organisations régionales.
