    Really not sure but at a guess I would say international health is about health care in other countries individually, and global health is about the health of the entire global population including your own.

    IMHO, International health is studying the health care in Zimbabwe or Belgium or Peru ... and Global health would be studying pandemics ... interconnective health issues.

    Just my 2 cents (or .029418 euro). Looks like ukstudent beat me to it.

    The question does not make sense to me but I would have to go with the other posters in stating that international health would refer to health care practices in other countries, while global health refers to health care practices or problems that affect the entire planet.
