Definition of Global Health

"Global health is an area for study, research, and practice that places a priority on improving health and achieving equity in health for all people world-wide. Global health emphasizes transnational health issues, determinants, and solutions; ..... promotes interdisciplinary collaboration; and is a synthesis of population based prevention with individual-level clinical care."

[Koplan et al. (2009). Towards a common definition of global health. Lancet,375(9714), 1993-1995.]
