Global Health Studies Section (GHS)

Welcome to GHS

The goals of the ISA Global Health Section are to: 1) strengthen and enhance the profile of global health scholarship within the discipline; 2) make IR the first discipline to provide this multidisciplinary field a formal basis to develop and grow in the years ahead; and also 3) enable the global health movement to benefit from the unique perspectives that international relations and international studies can bring to bear on it.
