International Public Health is sometimes referred to as “Global Health.” The challenges remain staggering and require the continued involvement of the many foundations, organizations, medical professionals and volunteers with passion for making human life a more fulfilling experience. Among the great challenges confronting the Global South, we can mention:

  • Malaria
  • Dengue Fever
  • Water availability and potability

In the developed OECD countries, public health issues take on a different form, including ongoing concern regarding the effect of nutrition on cancer and other endemic diseases.

This site will do its utmost to provide first-landing, essential information and references on these issues to help  be a part of the global solution.
