Global Public Health: A New Era addresses three major issues: the changing global context for public health; the state of public health practice in developed and developing countries; and strategies for strengthening the practice of public health in the twenty first century. This book is in three parts. The first part has two aims. Firstly, it surveys the complex old and new challenges facing public health practitioners. Secondly, it summarizes the state of health globally using new data based on measures developed by the World Health Organization and other groups to better describe population health status and trends.
