Format: Paperback
I teach several courses on global health and have found this book to be very good. It is clear, organized, and to the point. It provides students with sufficient background about the major topics of interest in global health that they are able to engage in in-depth discussions in the classroom. It's particularly good for covering some of the drier information that an instructor doesn't necessarily need to go over in the classroom, which then leaves room for case studies and a more detailed presentation of a few select topics in the classroom.

This text is very informative. There are many explains regarding health, public health, and world health. Unfortunately, the amount of information provided in the text was very overwhelming. As the previous reviewer has stated, the pages are covered with a lot of text. I would discourage professors from using this text, unless they will solely focus their lectures on this.

The very worst introductory textbook that I have ever purchased or used for a course. This is certainly not a book for anyone not already in the health field of education. The book is very difficult to get through. I had to read the whole thing for an Intro to Global Health course and this book made the course absolute hell. I had been excited over the idea of learning about global health but this book made this my most hated course in my college career.

It has page after page full of text case studies, and very little setup/explanation up front for understanding. It is extremely dry reading and the test questions generated by the publishing corp are often on esoteric facts such as which country has the third largest program for vaccination for xyz, so you have to read every little tiny detail and statistic after statistic on every page.

It is absolutely overwhelming reading and if the course is an online course with no lecture, it is horrific. In all of the coursework I've ever done, this is the worst textbook I ever experienced, hands down.

First of all, it's a textbook, who likes textbooks? My issue is that it does not have page numbers. Other books are a "picture" of the page, so it shows graphs and footnotes, margins, page numbers, etc- just like a real book. This one shows up like a book for pleasure reading- as in you can change the letter size. This would be fine if I didn't need graphs and charts and page numbers to cite. Other books allow for zooming in on charts, this doesn't even have the charts. This book looses it formatting. Sucks for school.

I used this text for my Global Health class. This is a great intro book, with lots of great information! The book also has many case studies of global health successes for reference. All in all, a good text for a beginning global health class.

This book was very helpful. Well written. I learned about programs that I was not aware of that exsisted in aiding people around the world. One program that interested me was "Plumy Doz", and I intend to do some research on it.
