Working in Public Health: An Introduction to Careers in Public Health

A comprehensive overview of public health organisations in England, this book presents case studies and personal accounts to raise awareness of jobs that improve health and reduce inequalities in public health in the UK and internationally

A comprehensive overview of public health organisations in England, this book presents case studies and personal accounts to raise awareness of jobs that improve health and reduce inequalities in public health in the UK and internationally.

Its chapter on global public health is especially interesting and informative, as are the personal accounts and case studies from experienced practitioners, specialists and staff new to their roles.

The book is intended primarily for people pursuing careers in public health, for example as public health practitioners in local authorities or as specialists.

However, it does not include sufficient specific information for community public health nurses who deliver face-to-face interventions and address health inequalities in their day-to-day work.
