What is Global Public Health?

The Institute of Medicine defines global health as “health problems, issues, and concerns that transcend national boundaries, may be influenced by circumstances or experiences in other countries, and are best addressed by cooperative actions and solutions.” In turn, public health is defined as “what we ... do collectively to assure the conditions in which people can be healthy.”
