The New Public Health has established itself as a solid textbook throughout the world. Translated into seven languages, this work distinguishes itself from other public health textbooks, which are either highly locally oriented or, if international, lack the specificity of local issues relevant to students' understanding of applied public health in their own setting.
This third edition features 40% new material, and is updated based on the 2005 accreditation criteria of the Council for Education in Public Health (CEPH). Contemporary topics include the impact of the global economic crisis on public health, advances in infectious and chronic epidemiology (including pandemics and superbugs), food safety, environmental issues, and more.
The book provides a unified approach to public health appropriate for all masters' level students and practitioners—specifically for courses in MPH programs, community health and preventive medicine programs, community health education programs, community health nursing programs, as well as programs for other medical professionals such as pharmacists and physiotherapists.
