Global health is an integrated approach of research and action in which health and disease are considered the results of processes that are not only biological but also economic, social, political, cultural and environmental, transcending and overcoming the perspectives, interests and possibilities of individual nations. It is possible that the main environmental risk factors are not yet known or that the health effects are underestimated, or that the exposures that have the greatest impact on health act in synergy with other biological or behavioral factors.

Abstract

Global health is an integrated approach of research and action in which health and disease are considered the results of processes that are not only biological but also economic, social, political, cultural and environmental, transcending and overcoming the perspectives, interests and possibilities of individual nations. It is possible that the main environmental risk factors are not yet known or that the health effects are underestimated, or that the exposures that have the greatest impact on health act in synergy with other biological or behavioral factors.
