"(The) toxic combination of bad policies, economics, and politics is, in large measure responsible for the fact that a majority of people in the world do not enjoy the good health that is biologically possible.
Social injustice is killing people on a grand scale. "
Global Health is an area for study, research, and practice, that places priority on improving health and achieving equity in health for all people worldwide.
Global Health emphasises transnational health issues, determinants, and solutions;
involves many disciplines within and beyond the health sciences and promotes interdisciplinary collaboration;
and is a synthesis of population-based prevention with individual-level clinical care

"Wer kann sich darüber wundern, dass die Demokratie und der Socialismus nirgend mehr Anhänger fand, als unter den Aerzten? dass überall auf der äussersten Linken, zum Theil an der Spitze der Bewegung, Aerzte stehen?
die Medicin ist eine sociale Wissenschaft, und die Politik ist weiter nichts, als Medicin im Grossen.„
