    The health of human populations around the world is constantly changing and the health profiles of most nations in the early twenty first century global health landscape are unrecognizable compared with those of just a century ago. This book examines and explains these health changes. While the overall picture charted is one of progress and improvement, certain unfortunate regressions and stubbornly persistent health inequalities are equally shown to be part of the evolving patterns of global health. The chapters of the book are organized in three major parts: part 1 introduces readers to the idea of populations having distinctive health profiles, how those profiles can be measured and how they change, using the umbrella concepts and theories of epidemiological and health transition. Part 2 focuses on the current international health scene, paying particular attention to the transitions within countries and regions, amongst special groups and indigenous groups, as well as the broader populations. It also examines health challenges such as the continuing infectious disease burden and current emerging 'epidemics'. Part 3 transports readers from the current health scene to future possible and probable health scenarios, ranging from the fairly conservative to more radical possible health outcomes. Using clear and original explanations of complex issues, this text makes extensive use of boxed case studies and international examples, with thought provoking discussion questions posed for readers at end of each chapter. Global health is essential reading for students of global health, public health and development studies.
