Abstract

International health is becoming an important field of study and practice due mainly to the increasing complexity of international relationships which imply both changes in the epidemiologic profile of the population, and transformations of health care delivery systems. At the same time, the character of health problems does not recognize the geographical boundaries of nations; instead, it may open or reinforce new areas of cooperation or conflict in the international arena. The many interactions between international relations and health impose the need to build and consolidate an academic and intellectual tradition of international health, which supports its efforts to generate knowledge and leads its practical applications. International health is experiencing important conceptual and strategic changes which have to be taken into account if educational programs, research projects, and national, binational and multinational health actions are to be comprehensive in their approach, scope, and focus. This article identifies those conceptual and strategic changes, proposes basic definitions, the universe for action, and the disciplinary base of the new international health. In short, the article proposes the transition towards a new international health concept and practice.
