There are many threats to global health in the 21st century: newly emerging infectious diseases, climate change, non-communicable diseases spreading among different societies and many more. There is an urgent need to find answers to questions how to organize an efficient health care system, how to define best practices in health policies and health politics, how to ensure universal coverage for all and how to fight new and old diseases.
This textbook gives an introduction in this intersdisciplinary field and addresses current and imminent aspects of global health. It assembles the fields of medicine, health sciences, political and social sciences, epidemiology as well as economic and management aspects of health and addresses at both students and global health care workers.
