Responding to the global challenge of chronic disease

Edited by David Stuckler and Karen Siegel

  • Examines the prevention and control of chronic diseases from epidemiologic, economic, prevention/management, and governance perspectives.
  • Covers both the developing and the developed world, looking at the causes and consequences of chronic diseases in the developed world, and the successes and failures of attempts to control them, as a model for the trends and prospects for prevention in the developing world.
  • Allows a comparative analysis that is less accessible to texts focusing on single countries of regions.
