Booknews
Analyzes why 13 million children die every year from preventable causes, and challenges conventional primary health care and child survival strategies, focusing on the disadvantages of using technological quick fixes rather than confronting the conditions that perpetuate high child mortality. Reveals how structural adjustment policies and globalization of the economy diminish health and quality of life, especially for women and children, in African and Latin American countries, and illustrates new approaches to health and development. Includes b&w photos and illustrations. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
