The Global Politics of Health PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

The Global Politics of Health free pdf International responses to the outbreak of SARS, the spread of HIV/AIDS, and the promotion of health as a human right all demonstrate how global politics have a profound effect on the way we think about and respond to major health challenges. Despite a growing interest in the relationship between health and international relations there has yet to be a systematic study of the links between them. "Global Health Issues" aims to fill this gap - ultimately showing how world politics can be good, or bad, for your health. This book calls for a more nuanced understanding of the nature of the current global health crisis and the political dilemmas faced by those responsible for the development and implementation of responses to it. By charting these debates and showing how they shape the way actors think about key issues relating to health, such as people movement- infectious disease- the business of health- and the consequences of war- this volume provides an innovative and comprehensive introduction to health and international relations for students of global politics, health studies and related disciplines.
