Disability and Public Health
Charles E. Drum, Gloria L. Krahn, Hank A. Bersani
American Public Health Association, 2009 - Medical - 212 pages
Disabilities and Public Health opens up a new vista and territory by drawing down a new set of tools and strategies from the public health domain to examine the social determinants of health for people with disabilities and to develop systems of health education, health literacy and organization of services to improve their health and well-being. It examines the circumstances of disability from a personal, cultural, environmental, clinical, and policy perspective and ties it together in a public health paradigm.
