Global Health – Ärztliche Tätigkeiten in Zeiten der Globalisierung

In der globalisierten Welt beeinflussen politische, kulturelle und soziale Faktoren das Leben von Menschen über Landesgrenzen hinweg. Sie führen zu weltweiten Veränderungen der Umwelt, fortschreitender Technisierung, zunehmender Mobilität, transkulturellem Austausch, sowie Ungleichverteilung von Bildung, Lebenserwartung oder Reichtum zwischen, aber immer mehr auch innerhalb von Nationalstaaten. Diese Entwicklungen haben zunehmend Auswirkungen auf Gesundheit und Krankheit von Menschen, sie wirken sich auf Lebenswelten, Gesundheitssysteme und Gesundheitsberufe aus. In einer Welt, die fortlaufend zu einem „Globalen Dorf“ schrumpft, muss ärztliche Tätigkeit daher heute weltweit vor dem Hintergrund der Globalisierung betrachtet werden.
