As their middle class populations grow, low and middle income countries are more likely to be burdened by non-communicable diseases like HIV, malaria, heart disease, smoking, and violence. This new text from the Society for Public Health Education (SOPHE) discusses global health promotion theories, best practices, and perspectives on the future of the field, from the individual to the global level. The 19 chapters update readers on the complexities surrounding these illnesses and epidemics and the individual, social, institutional, and governmental barriers to preventing them.
