The book ultimately constructed an outline of the PHA and included notes on the demographic pattern and trends; risk factors, morbidity, mortality, and disease prevalence; public health laws; public health institutions, public health services, programs, and coverage; workforce, health & medical education; policy, planning, and budgeting; epidemiology, surveillance, and preparedness; public health data, health informatics, and information system; public health management; public health additional tasks; public health leadership and achievable.
The book would be useful for students of public health, public administration, public health managers and administrators.
