Managing the global health response to epidemics, social sciences perspectives

Publication London and New-York: Routledge/Taylor & Francis, 2019
Collection Routledge Studies in Public Health
Description 294 p.
Abstract Recent epidemics have prompted large-scale international interventions. During a crisis, however, global health actions – including planning and organizing, communicating about risk, and cost-benefit evaluations – aren't usually part of single, integrated global response. Arguing that an uncoordinated approach can be challenged by local conditions, expectations and resistance, this volume provides insights for future outbreak management and global health governance. Drawing on experiences with A(H1N1), Ebola Virus Disease and SARS, the book takes a social science perspective to outline the current state of global health emergency responses and explore ways in which they can be improved.
