|Main Author||By Kathryn H. Jacobsen, MPH, PhD|
Introduction to Global Health is a comprehensive look at today’s most critical global health concerns and the actions that people around the world are taking to solve public health problems and to promote health and wellbeing.
The third edition of Introduction to Global Health has been significantly expanded to present the full spectrum of topics that are now included as part of the global health agenda, including global health dynamics, the links between the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and global health priorities, the socioeconomic and environmental determinants of health, the connections between health and human rights, and the funding and implementation of global public health initiatives.
Global health is a dynamic multidisciplinary field that uses a diversity of interventions to promote sustainable economic growth, support human rights, mitigate threats to security, and help people around the world live longer, healthier lives. Introduction to Global Health emphasizes strategies for the prevention and control of infectious diseases, reproductive health concerns, nutritional disorders, noncommunicable diseases, mental health disorders, and injuries, featuring strategies for health promotion across the lifespan.
