About the Book

This book explores the impact of globalization, economic policies, war and violence, trade and reproductive ideologies on global health and health services. It offers examples, both successful and unsuccessful, of international co-operative efforts to address these multiple issues, citing
international collaboration of health professional organization such as Jubilee 2000. It questions the efficacy, ideology, and scope of several of the leading players, such as WHO, World Bank and many NGOs that are trying to address these issues, as well as pointing out the emergence of
international organizations whose activities harm health, such as arms and tobacco traders.
International co-operative and health focuses on those public health issues that cross national boundaries. In order to put effective policy into place, considerable international co-operation is necessary. It is primarily about international collaboration to promote health of the world's
population. This book looks at how international collaboration can and does help to tackle current and emerging public health problems. It covers issues such as emerging and re-emerging infectious disease; health consequences of global environment change; trade, public health and food; war; from
humanitarian relief to prevention; the global tobacco epidemic; migration, equity and health and international co-operation for reproductive health.
The overall thrust is to suggest that health profesionals are uniquely placed to help develop organizations and policies, which by capitalizing on their good track record on international co-operation, they would be in a relatively strong position to implement to the benefit of global health.
This book is directed at a broad group of health policy makers and (public) health professionals, internationally especially those working in NGOs and international organizations but also those interested in the impact of global issues in their own country. This is an area of great interest and
importance. It is seen as a priority area for a number of international bodies e.g. WHO. The contributors are of international standing. There is no book on the market, which addresses the issues as proposed in this book. Professor Martin McKee is chief editor of the European Journal of Public
