Transboundary Health Determinants & Outcomes
Global change, both human-caused and natural, is resulting in health determinants and outcomes becoming "respatialised". This ranges from increased flows of people and animals, goods and services, capital, information and other forces across national borders (crossborder) to those which disregard territorial space and have planetary reach (transborder or transboundary). The result are new patterns of health and disease, and their determinants, which do not conform to traditional ways of conceptualising and organising national health services and systems. Our research is aimed at understanding how population and public health is being impacted by these global changes, and how we must develop new policy responses and interventions that address the increasingly transboundary nature of health challenges.
