This study examines the features and forms of global health diplomacy. This study explores various examples of different applications of health diplomacy. In this context, the examples of USA, Switzerland, Brazil and Turkey were examined. Contrary to the views of many scientists who argue that health is a technical area where the interests of countries overlap, this study argues that states have different interests in health policies and that they follow a sometimes common and sometimes contradictory health diplomacy at the national and international level, depending on the situation. He explains that when states cooperate or conflict in order to find solutions to global health problems, their tendency to use health as a foreign policy tool in order to protect their national and security interests increases. This study consists of 3 parts. The first part is the introductory part, after examining public diplomacy, it talks about power/soft power and then gives information about health diplomacy and its examples. The second part examines health diplomacy in terms of literature. The third part is the conclusion part.
