Hopkins Medicine Reviews A History of Global Health

The Fall issue of Hopkins Medicine includes a review of Dept. Chair Randall Packard's A History of Global Health, "Rx for an Ailing World." The review notes that "By placing global health initiatives from the late 19th century to the present in broad-based perspective—covering the medical, social, practical and political forces behind their development—Packard’s 16-chapter book provides those currently seeking to improve global health, and those studying to enter the field, much to ponder about its future."
