Description : The Oxford Textbook of Global Public Health is the ultimate resource on the subject of public health and epidemiology. It offers a global and comprehensive perspective on wide-ranging public health needs and priorities in modern health care. Thoroughly revised and updated for the seventh edition, the book is split into three main topics. 'The Scope of Public Health' covers the development of the discipline, determinants of health and disease, and policies, law, and ethics. The second volume focuses on The Methods of Public Health, including the science of epidemiology, social science techniques, and environmental techniques. Finally, The Practice of Public Health is fully explored, with sections on specific public health problems, ways of prevention and control, the varying needs of different populations, and the functions of public health services and professionals. Three new editors have joined for this edition, Liming Li (China), Fran Baum (Australia), and Alastair H Leyland (UK), complimenting Quarraisha Abdool Karim (South Africa) and Roger Detels (USA), for a truly global perspective on public health. Featuring over 225 contributors from countries all over the world ensures that the book covers public health from all aspects, with vastly different health systems and priorities. Featuring new chapters on gender identity and gender-based violence, environmental health and climate change, genomics and epidemiology, and emerging and re-emerging infectious diseases, the seventh edition of the Oxford Textbook of Global Public Health remains the most comprehensive text on the subject and is a vital resource for public health practitioners and trainees, clinical epidemiologists, and students in the field.

Description : Continuing advances in the science of nutrition and the study of infectious disease require that nutritionists be skilled in the behavioral sciences and social marketing in order to impact the preventable etiologies of obesity and chronic diseases. Add to that a new understanding of the social and environmental effects on health and illness that will further require nutritionists to expand their expertise and assume new roles in the generation of public policy affecting all areas of society. This important new book covers all aspects of developing and delivering nutrition related services in the community. Grounded in the science of nutrition, it offers simple, practical guidance and tools for nutritionists--whether working in clinical or public health venues--to develop and implement effective public nutrition programs. Each chapter begins with reader objectives and ends with "Points to Ponder" and a listing of helpful websites.

Description : Marketing Public Health: Strategies to Promote Social Change was designed to help public health practitioners understand basic marketing principles and strategically apply these principles in planning, implementing, and evaluating public health initiatives. The first edition has been widely used by public health practitioners at all levels of government and in the private sector as a tool to help run more effective campaigns to change individual behavior, improve social and economic conditions, advance social policies, and compete successfully for public attention and resources. This thorougly revised, second edition includes new case studies, written by respected and well-known guest contributors from the front lines and will help illustrate the principles and strategies in a way that makes it immediately apparent to readers how the material can be used in modern, real-life public health campaigns. Current themes in the social marketing world, such as the concept of branding, have also been incorporated into the book in both its narrative and its case studies and examples.

Description : The Ebb and Flow of Global Governance challenges the traditionally dichotomous distinction between international intergovernmental organizations and international nongovernmental organizations. Alexandru Grigorescu argues that international organizations are best understood as falling on an 'intergovernmental-nongovernmental continuum'. The placement of organizations on this continuum is determined by how much government involvement factors into their decision-making, financing, and deliberations. Using this fine-grained conceptualization, Grigorescu uncovers numerous changes in the intergovernmental versus nongovernmental nature of global governance over the past century and a half. These changes are due primarily to ideological and institutional domestic shifts in powerful states. The Ebb and Flow of Global Governance assesses the plausibility of these arguments through archival research on a dozen organizations from the global health, labor, and technical standards realms. Grigorescu concludes that there has been a continuous ebb and flow in world politics, rather than an inexorable movement towards greater roles for nongovernmental actors, as existing literature argues.

Description : With continued progress in mapping and sequencing of the human genome, and increasing recognition of the role of genes in disease etiology, there is a need for a more sophisticated approach to the investigation of the causes of complex chronic diseases. This text integrates the principles, methods and approaches of epidemiology and genetics in the study of disease etiology. After a brief historical overview of genetics and epidemiology and their gradual rapprochement, the authors define the central theme of genetic epidemiology as the study of the role of genetic factors and their interaction with environmental factors in the occurrence of disease in populations. They describe fundamental research strategies of genetic epidemiology including population and family studies. Among the former are the study of the distribution of genetic traits and the role of nonspecific genetic indicators (such as inbreeding and admixture) in the occurrence of diseases. Among the latter are the analysis of familial aggregation of disease and its causes by epidemiologic methods as well as techniques of formal genetic analysis (variance components, segregation and linkage analysis). Finally, the authors discuss the increasing applications of genetic epidemiology in preventive medicine, public health surveillance, and the emerging ethical issues regarding use of genetic information in society.

Description : These ground-breaking studies have had a lasting impact and attest to the belief that public health requires a holistic point of view, rather than one limited to disease prevention and control. The papers that comprise the anthology were selected to meet two objectives: to disseminate a wide range of information and to illustrate the growth and development of health promotion as a world-wide strategy. More than 50 public health experts from four continents contributed to the anthology. Their papers illustrate the diverse nature of health promotion topics and are presented in five "Parts": Developing a Framework Building Healthy Public Policy Strengthening Community Action Developing Personal Health Skills Health Promotion for Specific Groups Key documents in the health promotion movement in the Americas-the Ottawa Charter for Health Promotion, Health Promotion and Equity (the Declaration of Bogot), and the Caribbean Charter for Health Promotion-supplement the text. A glossary of health promotion terms and concepts completes the collection.

Description : The crisis of public health: Reflections for the debate brings together an important and informative group of papers relating to the process of analysis that PAHO has fostered for the last four years. The book first looks at the programmatic priorities established by PAHO's Governing Bodies relative to this issue and then presents representative points of view from throughout the hemisphere on what constitutes the crisis as such. These latter contributions were also the object of an initial discussion held in New Orleans, Louisiana, in October 1991, which is summarized in the third part of the book. Finally, a proposed agenda for future debate at the country level is presented. The principal objective of The crisis of public health: Reflections for the debate is to stimulate publich health professionals to undertake a more thorough analysis, with the hope of effecting a change in both what is examined (broaden the object of analysis) and how it is examined (use more far-reaching analytical traditions.) Readers will realize that the book is not merely a culmination of current concern over publich health but rather a point of departure for further analysis and action.
