RSHM Student Leadership Retreat
The world is increasingly shaped by powerful global forces, many of which have consequences for human health, and the social, economic, and environmental factors that influence health are increasingly determined at a supranational level. As borders disappear, people and goods are increasingly free to move, creating new challenges to global health. These cannot be met by national governments alone but must be dealt with instead by international organizations and agreements.
“Over the past generation, international health has given way to "global health". This change in terminology, while not yet universal, reflects a profound change in perspective. No longer can countries and institutions see health as a concern limited by national borders, as they often did in the past - global health is increasingly a concern of civil society. Global issues demand increasingly global responses, and health is among the main areas of truly global concern.”
- Edward Elmendorf, President and CEO, United Nations Association of the United States of America (UNA-USA)
