APHA Scientific Session and Event Listing
Session: Globalization and Health
5058.0: Wednesday, November 08, 2006: 8:30 AM-10:00 AM
Globalization and Health
Globalization is viewed with very different eyes depending whether one is running a multinational company or an individual suffering with HIV/AIDS in rural Africa. In this session we look at different aspects of globalization on health. We look at health indicators across a wide range of countries, we look at the role of the United Nations in facilitating equity in a time of globalization, and we look at issues of growth and the impact of trade barriers on health.
