Summary

By emphasizing diseases, programs, health systems, and health policies, this detailed revision helps readers understand the wide range of global public health issues and the various approaches nations adopt to deal with them. International Public Health: Diseases, Programs, Systems and Policies, Second Edition explores the public health problems facing low- and middle-income countries today, and identifies their three greatest challenges: reproductive health, infectious disease, and nutrition. Containing case studies throughout and discussion questions at the end of each chapter, this book discusses emerging health systems, their regulation, financing, and management. With an emphasis on the role of agencies in promoting health, this title illustrates the importance of health on the economic development of a nation, and the reciprocal impact of development on health status.
