HEALTH FOR ALL: The South Australian Experience (1997)

Edited by Fran Baum

The 1980s witnessed a renaissance in thinking and practice aimed at promoting health. This book describes the struggles and successes of an Australian State in implementating the WHO's strategy for achieving 'Health for all by the year 2000'.

Health for All describes the policy framework and looks at the crucial role of research, evaluation and planning in public health and at how communities can be actively involved in promotion health. The book also provides a wide range of examples of public health and health promotion in practice including women's health, aboriginal health, the role of local government, injury prevention, drug and alcohol programs and rural health.

Health for All is essential reading for health professionals and students in all health science courses.
