It is obvious that the gap in food availability between high income and least developed countries is widening. While the global hunger index published by Welthungerhilfe, IFPRI and Concern Worldwide indicates alarming levels of hunger in many countries around the world, the prevalence of overweight and obesity among children and young people is rising worldwide. A comprehensive interdisciplinary perspective is necessary to effectively counteract this imbalance and ensure healthy nutrition worldwide - despite climatic changes or complex political, social, and cultural conditions. Successful strategic developments in this area involve all relevant stakeholders "from stable to table". While the food supply is directly related to healthy, individual development, health care globally faces extensive challenges that go beyond this context. This includes - in addition to the increase in infectious diseases worldwide - changes in the spectrum of so-called civilizational diseases, which in many ways have causal connections to social development. Nowadays these can be perceived in global development and can only be adequately assessed with regard to prevention, diagnostics and therapy. A specific perspective on global health not only enables better handling of the epidemiology of diseases but also serves as a starting point for the interdisciplinary discussion about the development of individual and common living spaces and life opportunities. The master’s programme “Global Food, Nutrition and Health” directly aims to teach interdisciplinary skills to address these and similar issues and questions as well as to find answers and solutions to these global challenges.
