Global Health Watch 2005-2006: An Alternative World Health Report
Global Health Watch 2005--a collaboration of civil society activists, community groups, health workers and scholars -- has compiled this alternative world health report. It is a hard-hitting, evidence-based analysis of the political economy of health and health care. It offers a comprehensive survey of current knowledge and thinking in the key areas that influence health, focusing throughout on the health and welfare of poor and vulnerable groups in all countries. These issues range from climate change, water and nutrition to national health policies and services and the brain drain of health professionals from South to North.
