9780199238934: Public Health: An action guide to improving health

Many of the health problems in the developing world can be tackled or prevented through public health measures such as essential health care, improved living conditions, water, sanitation, nutrition, immunization, and the adoption of healthy lifestyles. Public Health is an action guide to improving public/community health, with a particular focus on low-middle income countries. It explains public health approaches to developing effective health services and preventive programmes.

This second edition has been thoroughly updated and new chapters added on health policy, implementation, communicable and non communicable disease, quality and patient safety. Containing real examples, illustrations and case histories to bring this important subject to life for the reader, the book covers the essential clinical services and preventive programmes including those for TB, HIV/AIDS, malaria, diarrhoeal diseases and the integrated management of childhood and adult illnesses. Practical methods are given for assessing health needs and working with communities to develop health services, and the development of hospital, health centre, and community health services, particularly mother, neonatal and child health services are explained. Additionally gender, social and economic influences on communities' health are explored.

The clear language that is used throughout the book to describe the key public health skills (such as epidemiology, managing medicines, communicable and non communicable disease control, health financing, and implementing health services and programmes), will be accessible and highly valuable to doctors, community nurses, and other health professionals, whether in training or in practice as health officers and mangers of health services and programmes.

John Walley practiced medicine in the UK until 1984 when he became a provincial Medical Officer of Health in Zimbabwe, where he implemented Mother and child health and PHC-community health worker projects in several districts. Following his MPH and Membership of the Faculty of Public Health Medicine, he became a health programme manager in a region of Ethiopia, developing integrated MCH/ family planning, TB and HIV services. From 1990-93 he was a Consultant for the Global AIDS Control Programme in Geneva and Malawi, and then a Health Training Adviser at the Ministry of Health, Vietnam. He is a co-director of a 7 country communicable disease research programme called COMDIS. His research and development work in recent years has been on TB, HIV and malaria. John Wright is a clinical epidemiologist and deputy medical director of Bradford Teaching Hospitals Trust. He has a background in hospital medicine and public health in the UK and in Africa. He has been working in Bradford since 1996 and is Visiting Professor in Clinical Epidemiology at the Universities of York, Leeds and Bradford. He worked in a rural hospital in Swaziland with his wife Helen in the 1990's and subsequently continued to maintain close professional and personal links, establishing a strong programme of international health development particularly in the fields of HIV/AIDS and TB. He is the Director of the Bradford Institute for Health and has established and leads the Born in Bradford cohort study which is following the lives of 10,000 children born in the city between 2007-10 to determine the genetic, lifestyle and environmental influence on health and well-being.

Review:

Review from previous edition: "The authors tackle the daunting field of public health with verve and intelligence... a very practical and readable work... a reliable and realistic introduction to the subject of helping to improve the health of all our communities." --Tropical Doctor
