Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Ross M. Mullner, PhD, MPH (University of Illinois at Chicago)
Description: This book highlights the work of the Global Health Council (GHC), the world's largest membership alliance dedicated to advancing policies and programs that improve health around the world. It primarily discusses management and healthcare issues occurring in developing countries.
Purpose: The emphasis of this book is on how to make a global approach to health result in improvements of the health of poor people in economically poor countries. One of its main arguments is that the lack of management skills is the single most important barrier to improving health throughout the world.
Audience: This book is written for professionals in public health, policymakers, and politicians. The book brings together an impressive group of authors. They include, for example, David Rockefeller, who writes the foreword, and Kofi Annan, who writes the epilogue.
Features: This edited book contains 17 chapters. The chapters are divided into five areas: 1) identifying challenges and developing and managing policy; 2) developing strategies, new pathways, and solutions; 3) creating networks and partnerships and planning change from within; 4) learning from experience and building a generation of leaders; and 5) leading and managing teams while recognizing and celebrating success.
Assessment: This book is well written, interesting, and an enjoyable and easy read. Three chapters are particularly interesting: William Novelli's "Managing Health, Health Care and Aging," Susan Dentzer's "HIV/AIDS: Lessons from Brazil," and Dao De Ching's "Leading for Success."
