    What is Global Health?

    Global Health is a field of study, research, and practice that places a priority on achieving equity in health for all people. Global Health involves multiple disciplines within and beyond the health sciences. The field synthesizes population-based prevention with individual-level clinical care. The field is notable for promoting interdisciplinary collaboration with an emphasis on transnational health issues and determinants.
