Routledge Handbook of Philosophy of Public Health
Edited by Sridhar Venkatapuram and Alex Broadbent, this first-of-its-kind handbook brings together an interdisciplinary and international group of authors to answer questions like:
- What is public health?
- What should public health be or become?
- How do causal concepts shape the public health agenda?
- How do study designs either promote or demote the environmental causal factors or health inequalities?
- How is risk understood, expressed, and communicated?
- Who is public health research centered on?
- How can we develop technologies so the benefits are more fairly distributed? Do people have a right to public health?
- How should we integrate ethics into public health practice?
