Global Health

Global health is the understanding of health care in an interdisciplinary context. It includes the study, research, and practice of medicine with a focus on improving health and health care continuity, accessibility and equity for populations. Global health initiatives take into account both medical and non-medical disciplines, such as epidemiology, economic disparities, public policy, environmental factors and cultural studies. It also stands for finding a solution through efforts from people in a variety of disciplines. This is where the conversation of global health begins
