This editorial is based on a keynote address given at the International Conference on Global Public Health, Colombo, Sri Lanka, in December 2012. It accompanies a set of papers which were also presented at the conference. So far, these papers describe a range of global health issues, from the health status of the United Arab Emirates through to social determinants of health in India. Two papers from Rwanda and India consider specific aspects of oral public health, which was a major sub-theme of the conference.(Published: 27 March 2013)Citation: Glob Health Action 2013, 6: 20671 - http://dx.doi.org/10.3402/gha.v6i0.20671
