Title Can Global Wealth Lead To Global Health?
Author Prof. Albert Lee

Global Health or International Health has become a trendy term and many academic centres have evolved around this ‘Global’ theme. Is it the emergence of new infectious diseases such as SARS, or the re-emergence of old infectious diseases such as Avian Flu (H5N1) and Swine Flu (H1N1) that drives this global action on health? Should global health focus on the provision of medical aid to low-income countries? And finally, is the training of health care workers in low-income countries a priority area, as it helps to build the capacity of health care systems to respond to various health challenges more effectively and efficiently?
