As the world becomes more globalized, so does the need to coordinate responses to shared global public health threats, a task often ascribed to Health Attachés. Health Attachés are not well described in the literature, but are critical components in the U.S. Government’s global health architecture. A Health Attaché is a special brand of diplomat who practices global health diplomacy (GHD) and by employing the tools of diplomacy and statecraft, bridges governments’ public health and foreign policy goals. By reviewing the literature of GHD, this paper describes three categories of practitioners and provides updates on tools and definitional concepts used in this field. By employing elements from the GHD literature and a review of the practitioners, this paper will presents a Diplomatic Tradecraft model of a Health Attaché, to facilitate more focused global health action among nations.
