Over the course of the 1990s and on into the current decade, a set of important social and political developments have changed the way we think about global health—and about its relation to human security. During this period, globalization has rapidly intensified, particularly through unprecedented economic integration, which in turn has led to new forms of population distribution and movement, increasing levels of social and economic inequality, and a new and evolving set of political tensions that differ in important ways from those that characterized the earlier Cold War era. These social, economic, and political changes have had a profound impact on global health and have linked health to human security
in new ways that, in a post-9/11 world, we are still struggling to comprehend and confront.
