This chapter reviews the development of international responses to the challenges posed by infectious disease and examines the structures in place today. It focuses on one regional grouping — the European single market — which, with its freedom of movement of goods and labour, is an exemplar of the process of globalization. This has brought both threats and the organizational structures to develop responses.

Keywords: globalization; health services; health care; international response; European single market
