Studies and activities on Global Health provide a composite, well-structured scenario that often cuts across many disciplines, not only in the domain of Medicine. Speaking of Global Health means recognizing the relationships and inevitable interdependencies among different social, political, economic and health fields. Speaking of Global Health – irrespective of the conceptual frame of reference – also means adopting a panoramic approach to health that conceives people, and their health and illness pathways, as an integral part – and often the result – of the complex society we live in.
THE MANY ASPECTS OF GLOBAL HEALTH
It is therefore difficult to outline a single, linear training pathway in Global Health, which is instead built on multidisciplinary, continuously renewed inspiration, reflection and exchange. The aim of this platform is to become an active meeting and sharing point for those working, studying and interested in Global Health, who wish to continue training and being updated in the field.
