29 The Determinants of Population Health: A Critical Assessment

edited by
Michael V. Hayes,
Leslie T. Foster and
Harold D. Foster
The "population health" approach raises a variety of significant questions. It demands we consider why it is that some people are healthier than others, why those differences are systematically distributed across social groups and how public expenditures ought to be deployed to maximize the health status of the entire population. This volume reports on a symposium which critically assesses these and related issues.
