Affecting the World Through Health
A Global Health Initiative

What is Global Health?



World health organization defines health as “a state of complete physical, mental, and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity.” Simply put, global health is the health of the globe; a state where the world is in complete physical, spiritual, economical, political and social wellness. Global health involves improving health and achieving health equity for all people worldwide. It also means transforming our narrow individual perspectives of health into a much broader view that includes the world around us… populations, environments and countries. As we know, everything affects health… food, water, air, relationships, work, sports and many other things we do daily. Therefore, it is essential that we view health in relation to all the factors that can possibly affect it… a whole view… a global view!
