In our globalizing world, Infectious diseases travel quickly and widely across countries, so do the large determinants of chronic diseases resulting in a growing burden in developed but also developing countries. Issues in traditionally non health sector such as Climate change or trade governance can have dramatic and worldwide effects on health and health systems.

These short examples illustrate what Global health is about:  issues that not only cross national boundaries but also disciplinary territories. In our interdependent world, more and more health issues cannot be addressed by a country nor by a sector alone and require collaboration, coordination and integration.
