Summary

"The Nation has lost sight of its public health goals and has allowed the system of public health to fall into 'disarray',"

--from The Future of Public Health.

This startling book contains proposals for ensuring that public health service programs are efficient and effective enough to deal not only with the topics of today, but also with those of tomorrow. In addition, the authors make recommendations for core functions in public health assessment, policy development, and service assurances, and identify the level of government--federal, state, and local--at which these functions would best be handled.
