Agree with you that global health is a separate discipline that requires specific training and research methods. Global health is the health of populations in a global context which places a lot of emphasis on achieving equity and improving health for all people across the globe. Global health emphasizes health challenges that have an economic or political impact across the world. Global health is concerned with the improvement of health outcomes across the world, including the reduction of disparities protection against global health threats that disregard national borders then addressing global health challenges such as mental health (Taylor, 2018). For instance, during the current time where the world has been struggling with the Covid 19 pandemic for the past two years, most countries have adopted a public health approach. By adopting localized approaches on a global health issue, most countries have therefore set themselves up for failure because efforts to curb the Covid-19 pandemic and limit the spread of the virus are disjointed across the world, leaving out pockets for the emergence of new variants of the disease that are threatening the progress that has already been made. The lack of a coordinated global health approach to the Covid 19 pandemic has therefore made it difficult to limit the effect of the spread of the virus across the world (Taghizade et al., 2021). Through the use of public health approaches as opposed to global health approaches, countries around the world have therefore set themselves up for failure and promoted inequality, especially in instances where some countries have more than enough vaccinations for Covid 19 while others only have a few vaccines. Countries that do not have enough Covid19 vaccines have therefore become the breeding grounds for new variants, which has also affected the progress of those with vaccines.
