At present there is a very active and public debate on global health governance. The World Health Organization has made the process of the selection of the new Director-General – due to take office in July 2017 – more transparent. The programmes of the candidates and the questions posed by Member States and many other stakeholders in global health draw attention to the many challenges faced by the Organization. This paper contributes to this debate by identifying major trends in governing the global health domain which provide leadership opportunities for WHO in global health.
