Introduction to International Health Theory: An Interdisciplinary Perspective guides students to think about how we approach and deal with health and wealth disparities between populations in different parts of the world.

Specifically designed for undergraduate students, Introduction to International Health Theory not only features a focus on medicine or health, but includes development, history, and economics.

The NEW Second Edition of Introduction to International Health Theory: An Interdisciplinary Perspective by Raywat Deonandan:

  • Reflects the author’s own biases and personal agenda with respect to international health and development, though remains as politically neutral as possible.
  • Explores theoretical constructs and more penetrative socioeconomic forces that allow disease states to manifest, striving to present the often-opposing arguments of most of the historically prominent theorists.
  • Includes a chapter dedicated to Emerging Issues such as climate change, the digital divide, demographic shifts, and much more.
