Main description:

The International Encyclopedia of Public Health, Third Edition, Five Volume Set is an authoritative and comprehensive guide to the major issues, challenges, methods, and approaches of global public health. Spanning across 5 volumes, 13 subject areas and 480 chapters, this new edition takes a multidisciplinary approach and presents the history, methodology and latest advances in biomedical research and related scientific fields including social sciences, life sciences, and bioengineering to address public health research, disease, health processes, and disciplines. The International Encyclopedia of Public Health, Third Edition offers readers evidence-based analysis and information on solutions to real-world problems in global and local health through a multidisciplinary and comprehensive approach. Covering all dimensions of the field, from the details of specific diseases, to the organization of social insurance agencies, the articles included comprise the fundamental research areas of global public health: historical roots, scientific research methodology and approaches, public health of vulnerable population subgroups (the aged, children and adolescents, at-risk populations), environmental and occupational epidemiology, health services, health systems, public health policy, ethical issues in epidemiology and public health, the epidemiology of diseases (anemia, cancer, cardiovascular diseases, respiratory diseases, infectious (including COVID-19) and parasitic diseases, emerging and re-emerging diseases, neurological and sensory disorders, psychological and psychiatric disorders), sexual and reproductive health, and behavioral factors in public health (sociological, economic and anthropological analyses, nutrition, tobacco, alcohol, psychoactive drugs, injuries and violence). The range of articles, from the history of public health and global issues to ethical aspects of health research priorities and human rights, make this work an indispensable resource for students, health researchers, and practitioners alike.
