Description

First published in 1999, this volume recognises that the role and status of public health in Europe has again become increasingly recognized and features contributions on various nations within the European Community. This is not only in individual countries but also in the policies of the European Union as exemplified in the Maastricht and Amsterdam Treaties. This book is a critical account of the present structures and policies of member countries and how policies have evolved within the European Commission. It describes both possible models and needs and contrasts these with the current legislative framework. It thus serves the needs of both practitioners, policy makers, policy analysts and students interested in public health and social policy developments.

Reviews

’…recommended to anyone who wants an up to date account of the EU’s role in public health and why there remains disappointment over the absence of a central focus on health. Some useful pointers are offered for future policy.’ Health Service Journal ’…offers a very comprehensive overview…the book should prove to be a very useful first point of reference for many readers interested in public health and social policy developments.’ Issues in European Health Policy ’…a helpful guide to the maze of treaties and European laws, commissions, councils and committees…a well-organized and systematic presentation…’ European Review ’…thoughtful and inspiring…’ European Journal of Health Law
