Along with the globalization of the economy, industry, and mass migrations in the 21st century, problems relating to the natural and social environment have also become globalized. In particular, infectious diseases, mental health issues and lifestyle related illnesses are influenced by changes in our environment. In order to tackle such issues, a new concept of "Global Health" is crucial for transcending cultural and regional boundaries. Tropical Medicine and Global Health research aims to go beyond the existing academic boundaries, using a new comprehensive approach to solve world health problems and train new professionals in "Global Health" who can be called upon internationally for this purpose.
