Health Impacts of Globalization brings together an interdisciplinary group of researchers to analyze specific case studies that provide much needed empirical analysis of the impact of globalization on health. The range of issues covered—AIDS, tobacco control, BSE/CJD, nutrition, cholera, anti-microbial resistance, WTO, global governance—is intended to be illustrative, rather than representative, of the diverse health impacts of global change.
