Global health knowledge


  • Abdolreza Jaberi Aghdam


The potentiall to be healthy: physically, mentally and emotionally. The potential to be happy. The potential to live life with purpose. And we believe this journey all begins with good nutrition. Because what you feed your body and your mind, changes the way you feel The purpose of the Global Health is to give us an opportunity to become familiar with the major problems and policy issues in that area. Participating in this issue will be able to understand and discuss the determinants of global health and global responses to health problems, including health systems. Finally we will be able to demonstrate a basic understanding of: 1)The burden of the most important health problems contributing to excess morbidity and mortality in developing countries and low-resource settings, including their magnitude and distribution and disparities in health status by gender, race, and economic class 2)Major historical, political, social, environmental, and economic determinants of adverse health in developing countries and low-resource settings in rich countries. 3) Path physiology of the most prevalent infectious and chronic diseases and medical and public health approaches for prevention and treatment. 4)Current and historic health programs and policies designed to address major health problems in low-resource setting and the roles of global health institutions, recommended levels of resources for implementation of interventions, and key barriers and challenges. 5)How to analyze critically relevant topics in the popular press and in the Global Health literature. By becoming knowledgeable in these core areas of global health, we should also be able to engage actively in efforts to improve health as global citizens. I suppose that revitalizing Sanatorium Industry will help to the 3rd issue in above as much as possible in near future!!!
