About this product
- DescriptionHealth systems everywhere are experiencing rapid change in response to new threats to health, including from lifestyle diseases, risks of pandemic flu, and the global effects of climate change. At the same time, health inequalities continue to widen despite efforts to halt and reverse them. Such developments have profound implications for the future direction of public health policy and practice. The Public Health System in England offers a wide-ranging, provocative and accessible assessment of challenges confronting a public health system, exploring how its parameters have shifted over time and what the origins of long-standing dilemmas in public health practice are. The book will therefore appeal to public health professionals and students of health policy and may also encourage them to become fully engaged in political and social advocacy alongside the traditional skills of reasoned analysis and sound evidence.
