"Since the late 1980s the international relief community has seen its resources and personnel stressed beyond capacity by humanitarian crises - large-scale man made catastrophes such as the conflicts in Somalia, Bosnia, Rwanda, Chechnya, Zaire, Kosovo and elsewhere. Covering topics ranging from emergency public health measures to the psychological trauma of relief workers, this volume presents both a seasoned assessment of current practice and proposals for improving operational efforts in the future. The discussion also raises important questions relating to the definition and direction of the overall humanitarian mission."--Jacket

"Diasporas and Development aims to deepen the understanding of the promise and pitfalls of diaspora engagement and how it may help to bridge the distances between societies in an unequal world. Just as trade, finance, information, and technologies are moving rapidly across borders, so too have labor markets and transnational migrant communities. Migrants are sending large quantities of money back to their countries of origin in the form of philanthropy, remittances, and commercial investments. They are also sharing knowledge and skills learned or honed abroad."--Jacket

AIDS and women's reproductive health by Lincoln C Chen( Book )
10 editions published between 1991 and 1992 in English and German and held by 159 libraries worldwide
Over the past decade, the AIDS pandemic has propagated so widely and exerted such a dev astating impact that one may properly ask the question, Why not concentrate all AIDS efforts on disease control alone? Why link AIDS with women's reproductive health? What is the scientific basis for this linkage? And how might AID~ control and women's health objectives be promot ed simultaneously? These questions constitute the principal themes addressed in this monograph. The 15 chapters in this volume are intended to provide state-of-the-art reviews of key interac tions between AIDS and women's reproductive health for an audience of scientists and policy makers in the AIDS and population fields. Impetus for this monograph comes in pan from what we perceive to be an inadequate global response, thus far, to AIDS and women's health ;>roblems. A common platform has failed to emerge among the disparate professional communities working in the areas of AIDS, STDs, and family planning. As a result, endeavors in these fields have been isolated, and opportunities for joint action have been missed. An enormous and, as yet, unharnessed potential exists for power ful interdisciplinary collaborations that could strengthen policies and programs against these pressing health problems of humankind

Human insecurity in a global world ( Book )
7 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 144 libraries worldwide
"The authors in this volume explore a series of human insecurities that are created or exacerbated by new patterns of global interactions. The problems examined include migration, natural disasters, contagious diseases, and environmental change. All of the authors address the policy frameworks, national and international, that shape possible responses to the fresh threats to human security. Many of the challenges described here are already high on the agenda of the international community. By adding a human security dimension to their analysis, these authors provide new insight into attempts to reduce our vulnerability to global changes."--Jacket
Women's health in India : risk an vulnerability ( Book )
1 edition published in 1995 in English and held by 122 libraries worldwide
Old age appears to be the least vulnerable period in a woman's life, which has much to do with the fact that her status within the household rises substantially with age. The final section provides a disaggregated view of the situation of older women, bringing out the circumstances which can increase vulnerability, and analyses their sources. Moving to a more activist perspective, the last paper of the volume outlines a set of concerns and goals for policy-makers, stressing the need for wide-ranging policy imperatives
