This chapter, which discusses the concept of human security in relation to the study of the impact of war on public health, suggests that this perspective offers a more appropriate approach to the evaluation of global security than the state-centric extant theoretical frameworks employed in the study of international security. It explains the broad and integrative nature of human security, considers health as a core component of human security, and analyzes the linkages among human security, war, and public health.

Keywords:   human security, war, public health, global security, international security
