The concept and organization of global health rests on a contradiction: It may be universal in its aimsto eradicate infectious diseases across the planet and prevent new ones from spreading, to improve generally, on average, the health of the worlds poorest citizens, and so onyet it must address itself to innumerable local situations, where extant health care capacities, social-political-economic organization, culture, climate, terrain, etc. radically differ from one another. How has the discipline and practice of global health addressed itself to this gap? How have/can medical anthropological approaches contribute(d) to bridging the global and local? Think in terms of concepts, approaches, and methods. Give examples.
