The WHO Report on Global Risk factors identified the 10 leading risk factors to world health as: being underweight at birth and during childhood; unsafe sex; alcohol use; unsafe water, sanitation, and hygiene; high blood pressure; tobacco use; suboptimal breastfeeding; high blood glucose; indoor smoke from solid fuels; and being overweight or obese. These and other important global health issues are linked to wider social, political, economic and environmental factors, including but not limited to: climate change and environments; community and household power relations; resilience, health beliefs and cultural practices.
Researching these global health issues often involves looking 'upstream' at the causes of ill health and factors that sustain health and wellbeing, often within a framework of health inequalities and social justice and in developing countries as well as the rest of the world.
