    schema:description "From the Publisher: The contemporary understanding of global health is complicated and extends to all ends of the Earth and beyond. From the health effects of global warming to the implications of single nucleotide differences on disease, the factors that impact global health are extremely diverse and are changing constantly. As new scientific advances are made, as new policies are implemented, as wars are waged and peace agreements signed, or as new strains of infectious diseases evolve, the state of global health changes. The Encyclopedia of Global Health is a comprehensive, one stop reference to a broad array of health topics worldwide. Encompassing four volumes with more than 1,200 articles, the Encyclopedia covers all aspects of health, including physical and mental health entries, biographies of major doctors and researchers, profiles of medical institutions, organizations, and corporations, descriptions of drugs and operations, articles on national health policies, and thematic health topics in the humanities. Key Features: Offers a truly global approach by giving the current health status in each country of five continents. Compares the mortality rates of infectious diseases and non-communicable diseases in developing and developed countries. Presents a historical context for important changes and issues in global health and serves as a foundation of knowledge. Examines how mental health and related conditions in developing countries are increasing toward the level in developed countries. Ties the curriculum in related health disciplines from biology, to psychology, to psycho pharmacology. Provides a glossary of health definitions, extensive cross-references to related topics, and thorough bibliographic citations, Key Themes: Children's Health, Countries: Africa, Countries: Americas, Countries: Asia, Countries: Europe, Countries: Pacific, Diseases, Cancers, Diseases, Localized, Diseases, Systemic, Drugs and Drug Companies, Health Sciences, Men's Health, Mental Health, Organizations and Associations, People, Procedures and Therapies, Research, Society and Health, and Women's Health. The Encyclopedia of Global Health is a useful reference for health professionals, as well as for general populations, making it a must-have resource for any library."@en ;
