Chronic Non-Communicable Diseases in Low- and Middle-Income Countries (Hardcover)
About this item
One of the first comprehensive collections of research, using systematic reviews of existing literature and reports of current research, interventions and policy initiatives, this book documents the key issues and highlights best practices and innovations in countries which have limited resources.It thoroughly investigates cross-cutting themes such as the double burden of infectious and chronic non-communicable diseases, weak health systems, neglect of social determinants of non-communicable diseases, and a lack of political will in tacking complex public health problems. It moves beyond documenting problems and challenges, to highlight best practices and innovations and offers concrete models for developing appropriate research, intervention and policy for all healthcare researchers and practitioners struggling with the double burden of non-communicable and infectious diseases with minimal resources.
