Public Health Policy and Administration

S L Goel (Author)
Synopsis Promotion of health is basic to national progress. Nothing could be greater significance than the health of the people in terms of resources for socio-economic development. In spite of this realisation, the people living in the developing world and especially 80 per cent of them who live in rural areas, urban slums and tribal areas have little or no access to modern medicine and health care. Inevitably this results in morbidity and high rate of mortality from preventable diseases. This state of hopelessness and frustration among the people is not because of the lack of professional knowledge or competence but due to poor administration of health services. The benefits of modern science and technology can reach the people only if such services are properly planned and effectively implemented. The development of health and medical services has been promoted greatly by advances which have been made in professional skills the technical proficiencies, but it seems apparent that the parallel advance has not been made in the art and science of public health administration. The present book "Public Health Policy and Administration" divided into 20 chapters deals with the nature, scope, role of health care administration and its relationship with socio-economic development. It analyses the challenges of health and hospital care administration in the context of the developing countries. This would help the academicians, national health officials, public health administrators, medical research workers and the policy-makers and planners in the proper understanding of health care delivery system.
