Textbook of Global Health
Anne-Emanuelle Birn (with Yogan Pillay and Timothy Holtz)
Fully revised and updated, this fourth edition of Oxford Textbook of Global Health equips students, advocates, and health professionals with building blocks for a critical understanding of global health. It explores societal determinants of health and health inequities within and between countries and an array of actions seeking to address these issues in spheres of health and development aid, solidarity cooperation, global and domestic policymaking, and civil society mobilization. The book encourages avid global health students, practitioners, and activists to consider social justice approaches as both viable and imperative, drawing from various solidarity paradigms and struggles ranging from community-level to national and transnational movements to building healthy societies and practicing global health ethically and equitably.
