This is the first book to attempt a critical examination of the wider human implications of different types of health intervention on human groups and communities in the less developed world, drawing together material only otherwise available in policy documents and reports from international agencies. Issues include the relationship between economic factors, health interventions and health outcomes, the implementation of water and sanitation projects, health and immunization projects and their implications for human well- being. The questions of why expected outcomes are not always achieved, and why outcomes are often unpredictable, are also discussed. This is an important volume for those involved in the design and implementation of health intervention programs in the developing world, as well as students and researchers of development economics, primary health care, nutrition, and anthropology.
