A friend recently asked what the tagline of global health would be, like a movie’s tagline, a short phrase that explains what the field entails. We suggested a number of ideas, from “Literally Everything” to “If it Affects Your Health”. Nevertheless, none of these seemed to quite capture it. In truth, nothing is truly outside the scope of global health.
That is what this blog is. It is a compilation of everything that interests us, excites us, drives us, and infuriates us in the field of global public health. It is about the problems that we are crazy enough to think we can solve and the ones we can’t stop thinking about. This might be our attempt at public advocacy, but it is also our way of articulating our own thoughts on these topics, informing others about global health issues, and possibly inspiring ideas that might just change the world.
