Geography plays a pivotal yet complex role in shaping global health disparities. This paper explores the multifaceted connections between geographical factors and health outcomes on a global scale. The distribution of health resources, environmental conditions, and socio-economic determinants varies significantly across regions, contributing to disparities in health outcomes and access to healthcare. One key aspect of geography influencing global health is the regional distribution of diseases. Certain diseases are endemic to specific geographical areas, and factors such as climate, ecology, and vector populations contribute to their prevalence. Understanding these spatial patterns is crucial for effective disease prevention and control strategies. Geopolitical and economic factors also play a substantial role in health disparities. Disparities in wealth and development among nations and regions directly impact access to healthcare, education, and basic amenities. This paper examines how globalization and international relations influence the flow of resources, technologies, and information, affecting health outcomes worldwide.
