Description

The New Public Health has established itself as a solid textbook throughout the world. Translated into 7 languages, this work distinguishes itself from other public health textbooks, which are either highly locally oriented or, if international, lack the specificity of local issues relevant to students' understanding of applied public health in their own setting.

This 3e provides a unified approach to public health appropriate for all masters' level students and practitioners-specifically for courses in MPH programs, community health and preventive medicine programs, community health education programs, and community health nursing programs, as well as programs for other medical professionals such as pharmacy, physiotherapy, and other public health courses.

Review quote

There inevitably will be different opinions concerning the balance between themes in
a comprehensive endeavour as the present volume [The New Public Health]. This does not deduct from the fact that the
volume represents a very strong contribution to the educational literature in public health. It will be a relevant companion to the public health student and to the experienced public health professional
as well, and it should of course be found in public health libraries. This comprehensive volume
actually seems to represents a milestone in the development of large parts of the public health
professional identity.
