Globalization and Health

Front Cover
Rowman & Littlefield, Jul 26, 2019 - Political Science - 252 pages

It’s a cliché to say that diseases do not respect national borders, but the realities of this aphorism present serious and significant challenges to the global community. Health and disease are intimately connected with the movement of people, goods, and ideas that are emblematic of globalization. This book examines the various dimensions of the intersections between globalization and health, calling attention to the challenges these relationships present and the opportunities for cross-border collaboration and solidarity.
