Global public health is in a state of crisis. Although some improvements in population health are discernible, health inequalities remain widespread and new challenges emerge constantly. In particular, alcohol-related and infectious diseases, malnutrition, violence, terrorism, armed conflict and climate change are growing concerns, while healthcare costs in many countries continue to rise. This provocative new book presents a sombre overview of the current challenges facing the global public health community, whilst proposing optimistic and evidence-based solutions. The author describes how, with proper support, many of these proposals could be implemented with immediate effect. Enlightening reading, this book is recommended for all international professionals and students within public health. Those with an interest in fields as diverse as epidemiology, environmental health, communicable disease control, health promotion, healthcare management, injury and violence prevention, international health, and policy development will also find it of great value.
