Globalization refers to the interdependence and increasing interconnection of countries and regions, which leads to the global exchange of capital, goods, services and cultures. Thousands of millions have gained access to better health care as a result. The globalization of health care has had an uneven effect on different nations and societies.
Globalization in general has made it possible for low-income nations to have greater access to drugs, medical treatments and knowledge from around the globe. These would be otherwise unavailable. The advancements in medical technology, for example, have increased the accessibility of healthcare. In addition, funding initiatives on an international level are providing resources for interventions in public health such as vaccines. This can be used to reduce the gap between countries rich and poor when it is about disease prevention.
However, at the same time globalization exposes vulnerable population to new risks such as changes in climate due to pollution from industrial products manufactured elsewhere, increased spreading of infectious diseases through air travel, malnutrition because food security is insecure; environmental degradation resulting from overconsumption. Moreover, inequalities between nations in terms of economic resources limit their ability for effective responses against global epidemics like HIV/AIDS or Ebola virus outbreaks—which highlight some major international health issues associated with globalization today.
Overall then it’s important recognize how both positive and negative aspects associated with globalization have had an impact on international patterns of health and disease around the world—and work together towards solutions that aim at reducing these disparities while promoting better outcomes for all citizens globally.
