 DESCRIPTION
spacer
In recent years there has been an explosion of concern about our deteriorating environmental conditions and their impact on human health. In particular, researchers are becoming increasingly concerned that environmental degradation caused by human activities could lead into serious, long term health effects for human population. In the context of health care facilities, there are wide inequalities in their provision in different regions. Geographic research into health care services is focused on identifying inequalities in health service delivery between classes, peoples and regions, can aid in the efficient allocation of scarce health care resources. The book geography and health: a study in medical geography includes chapters covering various dimensions of environmental health, and health care patterns and planning. The book contains number of regional case studies with inputs on conceptual and thematic aspects. The book discusses contemporary issues, such as women's health, GIS and spatial epidemiology, health of industrial workers, changing scenario of leprosy, Andaman hemorrhagic fever, waterborne diseases, environment and nutrition, distribution of goitre, health status of children, health profile of traffic policeman, changing lifestyle and health, primary health services, health system research and management, traditional medical system, and HIV/AIDs diffusion.
