Globalization and Health
Published/Hosted by BioMed Central.
This journal considers articles on all aspects of globalization and its effects on public health. Globalization in this journal will refer to economic, political, social and technological processes, which transcend the geopolitical boundaries of the nation-state and have resulted in increased interconnectedness of the world. The journal examines market liberalization, the changing role of nation-state, supra-national structures, poverty and equality, the changing distribution of communicable and non-communicable diseases and the risk factors associated with these diseases, and the growing awareness of our collective responsibility for one another. Global warming, global governance, global public goods for health, equity and justice and a host of related topics are emerging as priorities and illustrate the need for interdisciplinary thinking and debate.
