Successful efforts to control communicable childhood diseases (CCD) and reduce fertility have caused a "health transition" in the developing world. This transition is characterized by an increasing shift from CCD to non-communicable diseases of adults and old people. This two-volume set examines ways in which the health transition in developing countries affects the World Bank's disease control policies. A series of reviews discusses the public health consequences of individual diseases and disease clusters, measures the cost-effectiveness of disease control methods, and assesses what public health problems these conditions pose. Throughout the text, key diseases and conditions in the developing world are analyzed, and tables and figures quickly summarize the authors' findings.show more
