About the Series

Series Editors: Nana K. Poku and Jane Freedman

Consultant: Jim Whitman

This timely series provides robust and multi-disciplinary assessments of the actors and dynamics shaping the health of humanity under globalized and still globalizing conditions. Books in the series come from a range of disciplinary perspectives in order to address the complex interactions of human and natural systems and the roles of governments and international organizations in protecting the health of their citizens.

The series welcomes full proposals, outlines and general queries on all themes and issues pertinent to global health. This includes medical, political, sociological and economic perspectives on health, health governance and health finance; poverty and insecurity; the prevention and treatment of important but under-researched diseases; gender and health; the implications of global pandemics; and the varieties and challenges posed by the growing, worldwide expectation of some form/degree of Universal Health Coverage.
