International outlook

Global health focuses on improving public and international health. This can include the health of populations as a whole, as opposed to individual citizens, often with an approach towards prevention rather than treatment. It can also include health overseas, with a historic focus on infectious and tropical diseases in the developing world.

NGOs, governments and the academic sector also work around policies and advocacy to improve access to basic health needs, like clean water, food, medicine and treatments.
