Summary

An anthology on the ethical aspects of public health with ample introductory material and commentary by the editors. Some topics, such as policy for alcohol and other drugs, newly emergent epidemics, and violence prevention, are missing in traditional bioethics texts. Others, such as access tohealth care, manages care, reproductive technologies and genetic testing, are approached from the distinct viewpoint of public health. This book will be used as a text in public health programs and in bioethics courses that emphasize the community perspective of health.
