Artikelomschrijving

Global Health: Diseases, Programs, Systems, and Policies, Fourth Edition brings together contributions from the world's leading authorities into a single comprehensive text. It thoroughly examines the wide range of global health challenges facing low and middle income countries today and the various approaches nations adopt to deal with them. These challenges include measurement of health status, infectious and chronic diseases, injuries, nutrition, reproductive health, global environmental health and complex emergencies. The book also explores emerging health systems, their financing, and management, and the roles of nation states, international agencies, the private sector and nongovernmental organizations in promoting health. The Fourth Edition offers three new chapters that cover human rights and ethics, innovation and technology (including topics such as scaling up small innovations; entrepreneurship; licensing; private and public partnerships; product development; drug trials; vaccines; and the role of industry in lower and middle income countries), and public health infrastructure. The Fourth Edition also offers thorough updates on chapters on the Social Determinants of Health; Health and the Economy; Cooperation in Global Health; and Globalization and Health.
