Who Defines Global Health?

A panel discussion will be presented on the difference between international health and global health, and how there has been a paradigm shift in the pattern of thought surrounding the provision of health care to underdeveloped countries. Despite the shift to a school of thought that more thoroughly brings in all people, the ones who define health are still the ones who possess the wealth and provide the aide. This undermines health care. The people and countries receiving aide need to be included at all levels of the process, from defining what global health is to deciding the aide that is provided to influencing the training and implementation of the global health workers and the programs they provide.
