The globalization of public health poses new threats to health but also holds important opportunities in the coming century.
This commentary identifies the major threats and opportunities presented by the process of globalization and emphasizes the need for transnational public health approaches to take advantage of the positive aspects of global change and to minimize the negative ones.
Transnational public health issues are areas of mutual concern for the foreign policies of all countries.
These trends indicate a need for cross-national comparisons (e.g., in the areas of health financing and policy development) and for the development of a transnational research agenda in public health.
