Authors Jaime Gofin and Rosa Gofin – leading authorities in Community Oriented Primary Care (COPC) and Community Oriented Public Health (COPH) – bring together their years of experience in this newest title in the Essential Public Health series: Essentials of Global Community Health.

Your students will gain a clear understanding of the intersection of the individual orientation of clinical medicine and the population orientation of public health by examining strategies and case studies from around the world.

As part the Essential Public Health series, the text maintains the same clear, learning-friendly format, making it perfect for undergraduates and students who have no previous exposure to public health, epidemiology, or behavioral sciences and for use in programs of nursing, health sciences, medicine, and public health.

The book will stimulate learners to consider Community Health not simply as a technique but as a systematic approach for the identification of health needs at the population level and in the selection of relevant interventions to reduce health disparities. The COPC and COPH approaches are illustrated with 16 specific cases.
