Global Health and Health Equity
Global health and health equity are closely related concepts that aim to improve the health and well-being of individuals and populations worldwide. Global health refers to the health of populations around the world, and the collective efforts to improve it, while health equity is concerned with promoting fairness and equal opportunities for good health, regardless of factors such as socioeconomic status, gender, race, or geography.
Efforts to improve global health and promote health equity require a collaborative approach, involving governments, international organizations, healthcare professionals, and communities. This includes addressing social determinants of health, such as poverty and inequality, and improving access to quality healthcare, medications, and vaccines.
