In this article, based on a talk given to a recent meeting on global health, Julio Frenk and Octavio Gómez-Dantés argue that, although there are many threats inherent in globalisation, improving health is a unifying activity. They suggest that "exchange, evidence, and empathy" should characterise international activities to improve health and health care for all the world's people.
