The social ecology of infectious diseases by Kenneth H Mayer( )

19 editions published between 2007 and 2014 in English and Spanish and held by 1,953 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Social Ecology of Infectious Diseases explores how human activities enable microbes to disseminate and evolve, thereby creating favorable conditions for the diverse manifestations of communicable diseases. Today, infectious and parasitic diseases cause about one-third of deaths and are the second leading cause of morbidity and mortality. The speed that changes in human behavior can produce epidemics is well illustrated by AIDS, but this is only one of numerous microbial threats whose severity and spread are determined by human behaviors. In this book, forty experts in the fields of infectious diseases, the life sciences and public health explore how demography, geography, migration, travel, environmental change, natural disaster, sexual behavior, drug use, food production and distribution, medical technology, training and preparedness, as well as governance, human conflict and social dislocation influence current and likely future epidemics. * Provides essential understanding of current and future epidemics * Presents a crossover perspective for disciplines in the medical and social sciences and public policy, including public health, infectious diseases, population science, epidemiology, microbiology, food safety, defense preparedness and humanitarian relief * Creates a new perspective on ecology based on the interaction of microbes and human activities

Public health & human rights : evidence-based approaches( Book )

6 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 438 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Human rights violations are underlying causes of adverse health outcomes for vulnerable people and populations around the world. Public Health and Human Rights provides critical, evidence-based assessments and tools with which to investigate the role of rights abrogation in the health of populations -- from repressive laws to social discord, gender-based violence, human trafficking, and violations in conflict. Divided into three sections, this provocative study investigates how the complex interactions between rights and disease can best be studied, analyzed, and remedied; how the efforts of human rights advocates affect health outcomes; and how the tools of modern public health can assist in documenting, understanding, and preventing human rights violations. Part I illuminates the powerful relationship between rights work and public health practice in Thailand, Russia, Burma, and China and in U.S. prisons. Part II explores new tools and new uses of old tools for rights-based public health research. Part III confronts current policy approaches -- such as Brazil's integration of rights, HIV/AIDS programming, and the contradictory and confounding global policies on illicit drugs -- and offers recommendations for future programs and strategies

HIV prevention : a comprehensive approach by Kenneth H Mayer( Book )

17 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in English and Spanish and held by 269 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

HIV/AIDS continues to be the pandemic of our times. It is estimated that 36 to 45 million people including 2-3 million children already are infected worldwide and an additional 4-7 million more are infected each year. There has not been a comprehensive medically based AIDS prevention book published in the last five years. Since that time many new program interventions have been tried and much has been learned through evidence-based research. HIV Prevention places special focus on the array of interventions that have been proven effective through rigorous study. If there is one theme that has been learned to date it is that there is no one-size-fits-all prevention approach that will work in all the geographic, demographic and socio-cultural environments impacted by the worldwide AIDS pandemic
