However, it is not just health problems that cross borders or are common to countries around the world; solutions to these problems can also cross borders and be shared, regardless of level of development. All countries can both learn from other countries and also share their own experiences and information. An enlightened new definition of global health paints the picture of a two-way street: Shared problems, sharing solutions. This new definition is very important for the science of global health, as global health is portrayed as a road of sharing.
