Les enjeux de santé au Sud
International Health: Health Policy Challenges in the Global South
Healthcare is now an eminently political subject, approached at a higher degree of national, international, legislative, and private entreaty. Whether working on the global scale, in the fields of economic policy, law, security, development, the environment, or in the industrial and commercial private sector, the leaders of tomorrow will be confronted with major challenges linked to health. The focus of this first opus on international health issues is to educate all of these actors, sharing with them the knowledge they'll need to work in a legitimate and credible way with health professionals in the field, whatever their professions may be.
Santé internationale provides a panorama of the healthcare issues issues facing the global south in four sections: the considerable contemporary healthcare challenges in developing countries, the historical evolution, notably in Africa, of healthcare systems as they've been established for the past thirty years, the state of knowledge on the the efficacy of the politics, strategies, and financial instruments of development aid, and the contributions of social science research in service to adaptable, pertinent decisions based on a solid foundation.
Its ambition is to become both a pedagogical support to university instruction on global health as well as an academic resource on the big issues confronting developing countries, as useful in the scholarly milieux as for administrative and political professionals. This work could serve students as well as teachers, institutes of political science studies, major universities, especially in human and social science schools, business schools, as well as medical and public health schools.
