Background: Globalization has made the world perceive health from a global perspective, considering how trends and events in individual countries and different regions impact health at the international level. As the world strives towards health for all, there are some major challenges slowing progress. Materials and Methods: A literature search for studies on Global health challenges was performed using Google Scholar search database, PubMed, Medline, and ScienceDirect. The bibliographies of included studies were also searched for additional references. About 115 articles were identified. Twenty-five articles were considered suitable for the review. Results: Climate change is identified as presenting the biggest threat to the achievement of health globally. Unsafe products and poor nutrition are also a significant threat to people’s wellbeing worldwide. Lifestyle changes and increased use of harmful chemicals in consumer products pose a serious health risk. Low health literacy also presents a challenge as it hinders proper communication of health-related information. Inadequate investment in health workers further adds to the challenge of access to health care.. Conclusion: Global health remains the top issue around the world, directly influencing decisions on all other aspects of life, whether they are social, economic, or environmental. Good health is a priority at the individual, national, and international levels. As the world tries to address illnesses and ensure the safety of the population, serious challenges limit the success of the initiatives set in place.
