Public Health, Ethics, and Equity
Once considered independent of and often competing with one another, this diverse group has converged to achieve a common overarching goal: the well-being and thriving of the global being person within the worldwide community. This collective entity is embodied in each person and transcends differences between groups of people regardless of whether these differences are based on race, ethnicity, political affiliation, economics, culture, education, language, gender, age, or religion.
Whereas the traditional concept of international health focused on bilateral interactions between well-to-do and poor countries, the concept of global health reaches beyond the rich-poor dichotomy and geographic borders to the forces that separate the powerful, free, privileged population from the population that is powerless, unfree, and marginalized. In its acceptance of human diversity, global health is an expression of support for human rights. And with human rights as a key value, global health ethics thus provides moral guidance for world health systems and governance. It is critical that a very comprehensive World Health Organization WHO definition of health be used in our discussion, that is, health as a state of physical, social, mental, and spiritual well-being that extends beyond the absence of physical disease or infirmity.
It has at its core equity, compassion, altruism, sharing, sensitivity, dignity, respect, philanthropy, and professionalism.
