Social Dimensions of Health

Edited by: Ajit K. Dalal, Subha Ray

Improving health status of people is a daunting challenge not only for the health practitioners but also for social scientists and activists. Economists, anthropologists, sociologists, psychologists and demographers have made significant contributions to understand health in its holistic sense and to develop better health care programmes. This edited volume provides a comprehensive understanding of health issues from socio-cultural perspectives. The articles in this volume, contributed by eminent social scientists, present rich source material on theoretical, empirical and interdisciplinary studies done in India, suggestive of the new ways of health care planning. The book should be a useful reading for those who are engaged in health research and action programmes.
