Globalization and Health : Pathways, Evidence and Policy, Hardback Book

Globalization and Health : Pathways, Evidence and Policy Hardback

Edited by Ronald Labonte, Professor Ted Schrecker, Vivien Runnels, Corinne Packer

Part of the Routledge Studies in Health and Social Welfare series

Description

Contemporary globalization has had tremendous impact on health equity across the globe.

However, no volume has systematically analyzed the relationship between globalization and global trends in health outcomes.

This book consolidates and updates the findings of a global research project undertaken by the Globalisation Knowledge Network (GKN) of the World Health Organization's Commission on Social Determinants of Health.

Chapters examine such questions as: How has trade liberalisation affected the social determinants of health?

How has globalization affected food security, nutrition and equitable access to water and sanitation?

How well do present global governance structures take account of the health equity effects associated with the social determinants of health?

This landmark volume will be a necessary addition for researchers and scholars studying the field of globalization, health and social policy, and public health across the social sciences.
