About this book

Drawing on insights from international organization and securitization theory, the author investigates the World Health Organization and how its approach to global health security has changed and adapted since its creation in 1948. He also examines the organization's prospects for managing global health security now and into the future.

Reviews

“This book investigates the extent to which the WHO has fulfilled its disease eradication mission and has utilised the health-as-security discourse to reframe its public health mandate. … This book is highly recommended for those who are interested in the key role of the WHO in managing global health security.” (Lai-Ha Chan, Australian Institute of International Affairs, July, 2016)

“Kamradt-Scott (Univ. of Sydney, Australia) carefully describes the history of the World Health Organization (WHO), reminding detractors that the agency’s mission has remained steady across the decades and that it has, on the whole, performed its vital functions admirably. … This informative, scholarly book will be of particular interest to those in public health and public policy programs. … Summing Up: Highly recommended. Graduate students, researchers, faculty, professionals.” (K. H. Jacobsen, Choice, Vol. 53 (5), January, 2016)
