NUTRITION and GLOBAL HEALTH
Nutrition and Global Health began as a series of short literature reviews; since then, the work has become an authoritative and highly accessible resource on the vast and nuanced subject matter covered within. One of the major themes of the work is integrating nutrition into other disciplines: with its basis in biochemistry, human physiology, behavioural science, and even political studies, nutrition is a vital component in the success of interventions.
This book will provide students and practitioners with a roadmap for interpreting the global health landscape and create links between nutritional physiology, policy, and action. Based on widely used practices in global health, Nutrition and Global Health covers topics including:
* Assessing nutritional status, nutrition surveillance, nutrition and infectious disease, and maternal and child nutrition
* Micronutrient deficiencies (including but not limited to iron, iodine, vitamin A, zinc, and folate), plus the nutritional double burden of disease
* Food security, sustainable food and agriculture, working in the global health environment, and nutrition in emergencies
* Answers to the questions "How do I design an effective intervention?" and "How can I decide whether or not my intervention has done what I intended it to do? "
Unlike long and complex policy documents which rely on a solid foundation in basic sciences, Nutrition and Global Health is an accessible resource that allows clinicians, policy makers, and planners to better understand the global health landscape and stage better interventions.
