Introduction to Global Business - Cengage Learning Asia

Introduction to Global Health, Second Edition , is a comprehensive look at today’s most critical global health issues. Unlike other texts of its kind, this book emphasizes possible solutions to global health concerns rather than just focusing on the problems.

The author examines the socioeconomic, biological, and environmental causes and consequences of disease. Topics covered include infectious diseases, nutrition, maternal health, non-communicable diseases (NCDs), mental health, and injuries. The chapters also explore global health metrics, ethics and human rights, policies, and practices

The Second Edition is a thorough revision that offers expanded coverage of health across the lifespan, from childhood to young adulthood to aging (with additional coverage of NCDs, injuries, and mental health issues), as well as new coverage of health issues during humanitarian crises and health issues related to human rights.
