This paper aims at contributing to the debate on ways in which actors in development cooperation such as international NGOs or bilateral agencies could engage in a relevant, legitimate and effective way to achieving universal access to health. MMI argue that there is still a lack of platforms in which actors in health cooperation can critically reflect their own practices and approaches, share information and experiences, learn from each other and have an opportunity to further develop their institutional and personal skills and practices. They also suggest that a paradigm shift is required that breaks with the continuum process of development cooperation for health as it has been conducted during the last 50 years.
