Springer Publishing Company, Nov 26, 2007 - Medical - 592 pages
This essential collection presents a state-of-the-art framework for how workers in public health and related disciplines should conceptualize health disparities. The contributors, leading public health professionals, educators, and practitioners in complimentary fields, advance new evidence-based models designed to mobilize and educate the next generation of research and practice.
The chapters articulate new theory, procedures, and policies; the legacy of racism; community-based participatory research; new internet technology; training community workers and educators; closing the education and health gap; and addressing the needs of special populations.
Toward Equity in Health is an essential book for all who are working toward global health equity-whether in health education, health promotion, disease prevention, public health, the health care delivery system, or patient- and population level health."
