Primer on International Health

Yale Medicine Magazine, 2002 - Spring


by Robert W. Buckingham, M.D., Dr.P.H. ’78

Benjamin Cummings (San Francisco) 2000

This book addresses the process of sharing knowledge of international health among colleagues and students, a process that becomes more important as commerce and international travel accelerate both the globalization of human life and the pace of human and disease interactions. Buckingham and his co-contributors cover issues including global environmental health, primary care, malnutrition, maternal and child health, comparative national health care systems, epidemiology and the future of international health.
