This volume is based on a conference designed to promote a global understanding of the social dimensions of health change, with a special concentration on health in developing countries. The volume represents an integration of the information, theories and empirical analyses of diverse disciplinary fields. The concept of health transition has moved beyond the established theories of the demographic and the epidemiologic transition, showing that these theories are inadequate for understanding economic, political, historical and public health dimensions of health change. The volume is organized into five sections: patterns of health and social change, conceptual and methodological issues in health assessment, the social nature of mortality change, the cross-disciplinary mediators of health and social change, and the political economy of health, health policy and promotion strategies.
