"[Introduction to Global Health] doesn’t give you endless statistics about health, but gives you the skills you need to study it on your own. You’ll learn how to collect and measure data, compare health to population size, examine bias in research, and examine health with regard to ethnicity, occupation, and gender.
When you study health you must keep in mind all of the factors you’d learn in social studies, and that includes economy, religion, occupations, life expectancy, population growth, education, gender, equality, stability, war, famine, disease, agriculture, and so on. Introduction to Global Health is the best place to start with regard to this. It gives you just the right skill to get started in your research."
Introduction to Global Health gives you the most comprehensive look at today's critical global health issues. Completely updated and revised, the Second Edition offers expanded coverage of health across the lifespan, from childhood to young adulthood to aging (with additional coverage of NCDs, injuries, and mental health issues), as well as new content on health issues during humanitarian crises and health issues related to human rights.
