9780199751907: Global Public Health: Ecological Foundations

Amid ongoing shifts in the world economic and political order, the promise for future public health is tenuous. Will today's economic systems sustain tomorrow's health? Will future generations inherit fair access to health and health care?

An important hope for the health of future generations is the establishment of a well-grounded, global public health system. Global Public Health: Ecological Foundations addresses both the challenges and cooperative solutions of contemporary public health, within a framework of social justice, environmental sustainability, and global cooperation.

With an emphasis on ecological foundations, this book approaches public health principles-history, foundations, topics, and applications-with a community-oriented perspective. By achieving global reach through cooperative, community-based interventions, this text illustrates that the practical application of public health principles can help maintain the health of the world's people.

Blending established wisdom with new perspectives, Global Public Health will stimulate better understanding of how the different streams of public health can work more synergistically to promote global health equity. It is a foundation for future public health measures to be built and to succeed.

Review:


"Global Public Health: Ecological Foundations is stunning proof of the power of global thought and focused scholarship. It is simultaneously ambitious in scope and simple in approach, and the result is the definitive textbook for anyone studying public health at any level. I warmed to this book from the first page and could not put it down."

Professor of Public Health Leadership, Epidemiology, and Health Policy

"People across the globe are more connected now than ever before. This important new work by White, Stallones, and Last clearly articulates the power of this connectedness and the potential to improve health across the levels of an ecological framework. The authors effectively communicate the core principles of public health and relate these to a variety of critical global health issues."
