ABSTRACT
The authors reflects on foreign policies implemented for global public health through the Foreign Policy and Global Health (FPGH) initiative. It seeks to promote foreign policies that account for public health concerns. The authors believe that there is a need to move towards a more sustainable relationship between foreign policy and health requiring strategic policy analysis and research. They suggest that global health in foreign policy provides security on consequences of health crisis.
