Summary "Virtually every school of public health teaches a global health course, yet the major textbooks provide little on the actual practice of international health. This new book comprises a series of vivid first person accounts in which physicians, epidemiologists, activists, and public health professionals from around the world present the critical dilemmas and challenges facing the field. Aimed primarily at medical and public health students and professionals, this book will be a much needed addition to the existing literature. Related fields, such as development and urban studies, will find this book an engaging introduction to the field of international health. International health practitioners, national and local policymakers, foundations officers, and other related professionals will also find it an invaluable compendium."--BOOK JACKET
