About International Health Travel
“Health problems, issues, and concerns transcend national boundaries, may be influenced by circumstances or experiences in other countries, and are best addressed by cooperative actions and solutions.”
Global health is an important new term, and an important new concept. However, it is not just health problems that cross borders or are common to countries around the world; solutions to these problems can also cross borders and be shared, regardless of level of development. All countries can both learn from other countries and also share their own experiences and information. An enlightened new definition of global health paints the picture of a two-way street: Shared problems, shared solutions.
