Summary expansion
Spanning over 20 years of thinking and writing, this title explains basic concepts, for the benefit of non-economists working in public health, and further develops some of those concepts to show how they can be applied to real situations. The empirical material refers to a variety of specific health problems or interventions--among others, smoking polio, malaria, immunizations, and various forms of malnutrition and programs directed to overcome them
