Local is Global, Global is Local

Taking the approach that “global is local and local is global,” public health programs across the globe have much to learn from one another.  

Contexts vary widely, but many global health problems are rooted in disparities that persist from low and middle-income countries, to places like California where despite astonishing wealth, 20% live in poverty. In Rwanda, a program providing group care to improve prenatal and postnatal outcomes can inform its sister program in Fresno County, California, where 1 in 9 births are premature.

“While we have a lot to teach, we also have a lot to learn from other countries,” says UC Global Health Institute’s Tom Coates.
