This chapter explores the concept of globalization and makes an assessment of its potential influence on health and equity. It considers growing concerns about the impact of globalization on inequities in health. The chapter does not argue whether globalization is intrinsically good or bad or whether we should nurture or impede it. Rather, it accepts that globalization is a reality, not a choice. A more pertinent question concerns the direction of globalization. What type of globalization is good or bad for human health? How are the globalizing processes that are underway to be confronted and used for, rather than against, the promotion of health equity?

Keywords:   globalization, human health, health equity, inequalities
