0 Reviews
Nothing more needs to be said about the high visibilty of public health in this day and age. This is the first book that looks at public as as much art as science. How do you actually put public health programs and policies into action in the real world? How do you juggle current crises and chronic problems, how do you set priorities, put science into practice all in the context of limited resources, day to day demands and intense public and media scrutiny? From a wealth of experience, the author draws on real examples with a "behind the scenes" look at the strategy and action that must be undertaken to make public health really work.
