How much do governments spend on primary health care, mental health and on the less able? How flexible are they towards different approaches to health? What is the effect of high-tech medicine, such as organ transplants and genetic research? This atlas illustrates attitudes towards population control, fertility and infertility, life expectancy, the new challenges created by ageing populations and attitudes to death. It includes maps on the causes and incidence of major diseases; diseases of affluence, such as heart disease and cancers, and diseases of poverty and malnutrition; it deals with diseases thought to have been combatted, such as malaria and leprosy; and new diseases such as AIDS. The atlas ends with a series of maps on the different forms of health care, spending on research and medical ethics.
