Public Health: Global Origins of Modern Health Policy and Management, 1957-1995
As the world’s population ballooned and became increasingly urban in the latter half of the 20th century, the risks of infectious disease and other medical crises also rose. Yet thanks to technology, laws and education, most people lived longer, healthier lives than at any time in human history. Now, prompted in part by the threat of the COVID-19 pandemic, scholars are seeking to better understand how the field of public health evolved and adapted during this pivotal era. Public Health: Global Origins of Modern Health Policy and Management is a fully searchable digitized collection that captures international failures and successes, offering valuable insight for students and researchers in a variety of disciplines. Topics addressed include environmental pollution, developing vaccines and birth control, funding the World Health Organization, educating people about food safety and water quality, preparing regions for natural and other disasters, and much more.
