The Changing Face of Disease: Implications for Society

By Nick Mascie-Taylor; Jean Peters et al. | Go to book overview

procedures, the emergence of new diseases and new threats to public health, and rising aspirations of the public for a better life. Public health needs to maintain the desire, the zeal and conviction of the earlier social reformers that things could be better and that the public's health could and should be improved. This societal change is needed alongside medical and scientific progress coupled with appropriate action from professionals, policymakers and the public themselves.
