Increasing recognition of the impact that globalisation may be having on public health has led to widespread concern about the risks arising from emerging and re-emerging diseases, environmental degradation and demographic change. This book argues that health policy making is being affected by globalisation and that these effects are, in turn, contributing to the kind of global health issues being faced today. The book explores how the actors, context, processes and content of health policy are changing as a result of globalisation, raising concerns about growing differences in who can influence health policy, what priorities are set, what interventions are deemed appropriate and ultimately who enjoys good and bad health. Bringing together a distinguished, international group of contributors, this book covers a comprehensive range of topics and geographic regions and will be invaluable for all those interested in health, social and public policy and globalisation.

Industry Reviews

"The book no doubt will be very useful as a text in graduate social work policy and health policy classes as well as to those professionals interested in social and public policy, health and globalisation. The editors and contributors are to be commended for addressing complex issues which are not only urgent but timely as well." Journal of Sociology and Social Welfare, Mizanur R. Miah, SIU - Carbondale
