DescriptionContentsAuthors

There is a growing awareness of the crucial relationship between health and development. However, while the importance of this relationship may be obvious, scholars are still debating about the nature of it, and different assumptions on this crucial relationship have an impact on the agenda of international organizations. What are the main vulnerabilities of the current approach? How does the long term impact of different diseases affect economic development? Leading practitioners address these strategic questions and explore potential new paradigms. Health and Development brings the reader to a closer understanding of the role of international organizations in the global health arena, providing a unique perspective on the most critical challenges the world is facing.
