Overview

The central thesis collectively advocated by the seven contributions presented in this book by Aday (public health and medicine, U. of Texas School of Public Health) is that to improve population health and reduce health disparities, policymaking must take into account the fundamental social, economic, and ecological determinants of health. After an introductory chapter laying out this analytic framework in more detail, chapters address the range of determinants of population health and consider the ways to bring recognition of these determinants into public health in the realms of sustainable development, human development, economic development, and community development.
