Global Health: read

Global Health is the area of study, research and practice that places a priority on improving health, reducing disparities, and achieving equity in health for all people worldwide. No one should be denied health education and treatment because of race, class, nationality, gender, sexual orientation, or socio-economic status—yet many are.
