  • Waterstones Nutrition and Global Health

    Price: £44.99

    Brand: Waterstones

     

    Description: NUTRITION and GLOBAL HEALTH Nutrition and Global Health began as a series of short literature reviews; since then, the work has become an authoritative and highly accessible resource on the vast and nuanced subject matter covered within. One of the major themes of the work is integrating nutrition into other disciplines: with its basis in biochemistry, human physiology, behavioural science, and even political studies, nutrition is a vital component in the success of interventions. This book will provide students and practitioners with a roadmap for interpreting the global health landscape and create links between nutritional physiology, policy, and action. Based on widely used practices in global health, Nutrition and Global Health covers topics including: Assessing nutritional status, nutrition surveillance, nutrition and infectious disease, and maternal and child nutrition Micronutrient deficiencies (including but not limited to iron, iodine, vitamin A, zinc, and folate), plus the nutritional double burden of disease Food security, sustainable food and agriculture, working in the global health environment, and nutrition in emergencies Answers to the questions 'How do I design an effective intervention?" and 'How can I decide whether or not my intervention has done what I intended it to do? " Unlike long and complex policy documents which rely on a solid foundation in basic sciences, Nutrition and Global Health is an accessible resource that allows clinicians, policy makers, and planners to better understand the global health landscape and stage better interventions.

    Description: Over the past century, hundreds of billions of dollars have been invested in programs aimed at improving health on a global scale. Given the enormous scale and complexity of these lifesaving operations, why do millions of people in low-income countries continue to live without access to basic health services, sanitation, or clean water? And why are deadly diseases like Ebola able to spread so quickly among populations? In A History of Global Health, Randall M. Packard argues that global-health initiatives have saved millions of lives but have had limited impact on the overall health of people living in underdeveloped areas, where health-care workers are poorly paid, infrastructure and basic supplies such as disposable gloves, syringes, and bandages are lacking, and little effort has been made to address the underlying social and economic determinants of ill health. Global-health campaigns have relied on the application of biomedical technologies-vaccines, insecticide-treated nets, vitamin A capsules-to attack specific health problems but have failed to invest in building lasting infrastructure for managing the ongoing health problems of local populations. Designed to be read and taught, the book offers a critical historical view, providing historians, policy makers, researchers, program managers, and students with an essential new perspective on the formation and implementation of global-health policies and practices.

  • Waterstones Governing Global Health

    Price: £17.49

    Brand: Waterstones

     

    Description: The past few decades have seen a massive increase in the number of international organizations focusing on global health. Campaigns to eradicate or stem the spread of AIDS, SARS, malaria, and Ebola attest to the increasing importance of globally-oriented health organizations. These organizations may be national, regional, international, or even non-state organizations-like Medicins Sans Frontieres. One of the more important recent trends in global health governance, though, has been the rise of public-private partnerships (PP Ps) where private non-governmental organizations, for-profit enterprises, and various other social entrepreneurs work hand-in-hand with governments to combat specific maladies. A primary driver for this development is the widespread belief that by joining together, PP Ps will attack health problems and fund shared efforts more effectively than other systems. As Chelsea Clinton and Devi Sridhar show in Governing Global Health, these partnerships are not only important for combating infectious diseases; they also provide models for developing solutions to a host of other serious global health challenges and questions beyond health. But what do we actually know about the accountability and effectiveness of PP Ps in relation to the traditional multilaterals? According to Clinton and Sridhar, we have known very little because scholars have not accumulated enough data or developed effective ways to assess them-until now. In their analysis, they uncovered both strength and weaknesses of the model. Using principal-agent theory in which governments are the principals directing international agents of various type, they take a closer look at two major PP Ps-the Global Fund to Fight HIV/AIDS, TB and Malaria and the GAVI Alliance-and two major more traditional international organizations-the World Health Organization and the World Bank. An even-handed and thorough empirical analysis of one of the most pressing topics in world affairs, Governing Global Health will reshape our understanding of how organizations can more effectively prevent the spread of communicable diseases like AIDS and reduce pervasive chronic health problems like malnutrition.
