Health care is in transition. Demographics are changing. The world is aging. Resources are strained, and organizational methods for preventing and curing disease (and then paying the bills) are constantly shifting. In Life Sciences and Health Challenges Susan Raymond brings together a distinguished group of contributors to offer a global view of major public health issues.
The authors begin with an overview of global public health collaboration. They then discuss such research priorities as childhood vaccination and the role of academic health centers. They examine the challenges of resurgent infectious diseases; disease surveillance and control; reproductive health; contraceptive research; and the special challenges offered by development of biological weapons. The book concludes with a look at policies and partnerships on the biotech frontier.
Contributors are Barry R. Bloom, William C. Richardson, Margaret Hamburg, Joshua Lederberg, Stephen S. Morse, Timothy E. Wirth, Margaret Catley-Carlson, Allan Rosenfield, Michael E. Kafrissen, and Richard Danzig.
