WHO answered this perfectly:

"While they will differ from country to country, stakeholders might include:

  • government -- not only the Ministry of Health or Department of Health, but also Finance, Treasury, Education, etc
  • non-governmental organisations and not-for-profit sector
  • community groups and civil society organisations
  • business and the private sector
  • political parties
  • local government
  • health insurance groups and other health care funders
  • donors and aid agencies, including global health initiatives
  • UN agencies, including WHO
  • health workers 'organisations & health care providers' networks
  • patients and health service users."
