International Health and Health for All

Abstract

Few physicians, educators, or health administrators would take issue with the concept of international health; yet it has largely been only in the post-World War II era that global life has sparked such concern. This is probably due more to the impact of other survival issues, such as nuclear arms control, conflict resolutions, and trade and monetary policies, than to more humane perspectives, such as those relevant to geographic medicine or primary health care delivery in the developing world, or to educational exchanges and international participation in the training of health workers, physicians, scientists, or other personnel at various levels of management and expertise.
