This chapter summarizes the state of global public health and suggests the way forward for improving the practice of global public health. It begins by reviewing the main themes from the earlier chapters: the daunting context, the weakness of the public health infrastructure and workforce, the challenges presented by the broad scope of public health, and the ongoing renaissance of public health. It describes a vision for public health and outlines the steps required to achieve this vision. It emphasizes the need to strengthen public health training, especially at the postgraduate level, and the ability of public health practitioners to carry out their multiple activities, especially at the country level.

Keywords:   public health practice, health policy, global public health, public health infrastructure, workforce
