Foundations of Global Health

An Interdisciplinary Reader

Peter J. Brown and Svea Closser

Foundations of Global Health: An Interdisciplinary Reader is a collection of highly readable articles with a significant amount of original text by the editors. Supplementary instructive materials include "conceptual tools" summaries, background information on authors and context, provocative section and article introductions, discussion questions, and suggestions for further reading and internet exploration. Like the field of global health itself, the readings focus on the public health challenges faced by low- and middle-income countries as well as the persistent problems of health disparities in high-income countries.
