Public Health: Global Health

The art and science dealing with the protection and improvement of community health, prolonging life and promoting health through organized efforts, as opposed to the medical science of preventing disease, or the study of disease in an individual body.

"It is generally agreed that global health goes beyond the health of individual communities and nations, to incorporate the health of people worldwide. An important difference between public health and global health, is that global health involves elements of foreign policy and diplomacy amidst the medicinal aspects of irradicating disease and other health concerns."
