About this book

Winner of the BMA Board of Science Award for the Public Understanding of Science and the BMA Medical Book Award for Public Health

This is a major new graphic profile of global health. The atlas maps the causes and incidences of the major diseases as well as the economic, social and environmental factors that impact on people's health worldwide. Bringing together the latest data and charting recent trends in health and disease, it also addresses how health needs are identified, health policy is developed, and the delivery and quality of health services.

The atlas covers a wide range of topics including:

life expectancy * malnutrition and obesity * water and sanitation * cancer * heart disease * diabetes * tobacco and alcohol * migration and refugees * climate change * infectious diseases, from malaria to HIV/AIDS and tuberculosis * mental health * SARS, avian flu and pandemic planning * urbanization * healthcare acquired infection and antibiotic resistance

Review Quotes

'Brilliant and original, this vividly informative book gives an incredibly holistic account of how our planet is divided by health and wealth, and generates another route into understanding the nature of our supposedly globalised world.'

'The State of Health Atlas is attractive, informative, inspiring and provocative. Emerging from the colourful maps and contrasting figures, percentages, bars and pies are numerous questions of 'why, why and why?' This atlas is not for your information, it is a challenge for our concerted efforts and actions, for public health, not just for our own communities, but for this endangered globe and the billions of people who are in desperate conditions.'
Professor TH Lam, MD, School of Public Health, The University of Hong Kong
