    Abstract

    This chapter explores the key concepts in international health and social work. The chapter begins with a brief reference to history of health policy and social work, a discussion of health outcomes and determinants, and an overview of key players in international social work. In the core of the chapter, these themes are exemplified through the discussion of four global health issues: illnesses, people, providers and activism. Recommendations for improving health outcomes are presented to assist whereever social workers operate: on the front line of practice, in inter-professional and policy making forums within countries and where opportunities exist for international action.
