Abstract A survey of global health experts attending an invited meeting provided a means to map key issues perceived to be shaping emerging global public health agendas. Eighty-five participants proposed three major issues likely to have the most significant impact on the field of global health in the coming years. Six raters grouped the resultant items, with multi-dimensional scaling (MDS) analysis producing a composite two-dimensional map depicting the overall patterning of items. Thematic… 
Global public health today: connecting the dots
TLDR
The study highlighted some of the main public health challenges currently under debate in the global arena, providing interesting ideas and should lead to a serious rethinking of education curricula to allow the next generation to engage within political contexts for restructuring global public health.
