DefinitionWikipedia<br />Global health is the health of populations in a global context and transcends the perspectives and concerns of individual nations.[1] Health problems that transcend national borders or have a global political and economic impact, are often emphasized.[2] It has been defined as 'the area of study, research and practice that places a priority on improving health and achieving equity in health for all people worldwide'.[3] Thus, global health is about worldwide improvement of health, reduction of disparities, and protection against global threats that disregard national borders.[4<br />
