9780071791007: Understanding Global Health, 2E (Lange Medical Books)

A complete introductory review of global health--updated to reflect the latest issues and challenges

The first edition of Understanding Global Health set a new information standard for this rapidly emerging subject. Written by a remarkable group of authors and contributors, this comprehensive, engagingly written text offers unmatched coverage of every important topic--from infectious disease to economics to war. Created with the non-specialist in mind, Understanding Global Health explores the current burden of disease in the world, how health is determined, and the problems faced by populations and health care workers around the world.

The second edition has been thoroughly updated to include the most current information and timely topics. New chapters cover such topics as human trafficking, malaria and neglected tropical diseases, surgical issues in global health, and mental health. Every chapter includes Learning Objectives, Summary, Study Questions, and References and, in many instances, practical case examples.

Thorough coverage of every important subject, including:

  • Epidemiology, Biostatistics, and Surveillance
  • Nutrition
  • Primary Care in Global Health
  • Tuberculosis and HIV/AIDS
  • Education and Careers in Global Health
  • Aging Populations and Chronic Illness
  • Global Health Ethics
