Foreword The term public health may conjure up a variety of ideas. For some it means drains and sewage. To others it might mean visions of people queuing up for mass X-rays, immunization and screening. For still others it might summon up thoughts about housing conditions, slum clearance and school dinners. And in the contemporary world for some, public health embraces a vision of creating a healthy environment and an environmentally sustainable planet.

All these visions are valid and are grounded in the historical facts of the gradual and eventually systematic improvement in the health of the public that we have witnessed since the early part of the 19th century in Britain.

The conquest of killer infections, the improvement in housing conditions and nutritional standards, the regulations introduced to control dangerous occupational hazards like asbestos and other carcinogenic agents and in recent times the decreasing acceptability of cigarette smoking have, among other things, made us as a population much healthier than we once were.

We have attained them and all that is required is that we somehow maintain the status quo. This is a deceptive if appealing conclusion.

A program of

The right to health and the improved health status we now enjoy were actually very hard won. At every stage in the history of public health there have been vested interests that opposed measures that improved or protected public health.

But it was not always so. When these and virtually every other public health measure were originally proposed, there were those who opposed what we now take for granted. The conclusion is also deceptive because there is still a long way to go. The clean FOREWORD xix water, sanitation and decent housing now enjoyed by the great majority of Britons are not universal; large parts of the world do not have even these basics.

In many places children still do go to work in factories and sweatshops at very young ages. Here in Britain the population is healthier at aggregate level than any time in the past and people are living longer.

However, at the same time as the overall health of the population has improved, the inequalities in the health of the population have got worse. The conclusion is deceptive for a third reason. Public health occupies the very uncomfortable territory where the rights of some clash with rights of others. To give one person a right to health is to restrict or even eliminate the utility of some other person or group.

This of course makes public health very exciting and as this volume demonstrates in a very exciting position at the beginning of the 21st century. Public health, as this book demonstrates, deals with the big issues. It operates in the territory in which the biology of the human body connects with the world of work, the home, and the family and the wider determinants of health.

So public health operates at the point where human psychology, sociology, economics, politics, geography and medicine intersect and overlap. We are the public, and it is our health. And of course there are issues of justice and fairness, or injustice and unfairness which are of fundamental interest to public health. Why a male child born in the North-west region of England should have a life expectancy xx FOREWORD years less than his counterpart born in Surrey, speaks volumes about the need to generate a decisive role for public health.

The second edition of this text is a very welcome addition to the public health library. The sweep of its interests and the vision it encapsulates marks it out as a true standard bearer for public health into the 21st century.

Its approach is comprehensive and its subject matter compelling. In spite of the challenges ahead for public health, the book reminds us of the quality of those practising and writing about the subject in the UK today. Our thanks also go to our colleagues at the University of the West of England, Bristol, who have given encouragement and practical support at key times in the development of this book and who have contributed to creating a stimulating collegiate environment in public health for us at work.

Finally, thanks go to our families for putting up with our absences, both mental and physical. In our second edition we aim to contribute to strengthening public health practice in the 21st century. Strengthening public health means that we need to inspire, we need to explain, and we need to communicate. We need to create a commitment to change and spelling out the health challenges powerfully and imaginatively helps to create that impetus.

This is the challenge laid down for all those who contribute to improving public health and well-being. This should prevent costly treatment as a result of chronic ill health into the future Wanless Well-being has become more important.

The connections between healthy communities and the environment are clear. Our future good health depends upon looking after the planet and taking as many steps back from disturbing its natural rhythms as possible Lovelock We explore the meaning of public health for the 21st century within the current debates and policy changes that are reshaping its context.

We examine the vital connections between public health knowledge and professional writing and the rationale for the current commitment to public health. Organization of the book Structure This book has been edited as a resource to inspire the development of future public health with contributory chapters by authors in public health academia and practice.

It is structured into four parts. Reading this introduction to the whole book in conjunction with the overview of each part is, in itself, a useful exercise for getting to grips with the scope of 21st century public health. Who is this book for? Some of you will be interested in reading this book as a whole. There will also be readers who are interested in particular parts and chapters. Public health policy including modernization and its implementation is evaluated critically as are the roles of local authorities in health improvement.

In Part 2 the authors identify the partners in public health and assess the capacity and capability of the public health workforce, including lay people and communities, to meet new objectives of multidisciplinary public health. Public health resources and action have to address some all pervasive public health problems.

Each of these themes is considered in Part 3. In Part 4, the authors outline ways in which disciplines such as epidemiology, community development and economics can work together and move forward.

The authors outline three separate approaches to evaluation from epidemiology: economics; community health and well-being. The book is concluded with Chapter 18 in which Gabriel Scally presents a vision for the future of public health in the 21st century. Focus moves to the global issues of AIDS, transportation, obesity and tobacco as complex public health issues which impact considerably on sustainable development. This concluding discussion will help to create the impetus to strengthen public health referred to by Liam Donaldson earlier by inspiring everyone with an interest in public health to consider these health challenges and commit to change.

Items per page: Sort by: Print Publication Year: Nov Series: Nov eISBN: There is growing interest internationally in the contributions which the creative arts can make to wellbeing and health both in healthcare and community settings.

This textbook is the first This textbook is the first work of its kind tobring together contributions from practitioners and researchers in the creative arts in health field from around the world to provide a comprehensive account of the role the creative arts have in addressing public health needs at individual and community levels across the life-course.

These developments are set firmly within a public health framework and argue that the creative arts can help in addressing some of the most pressing health challenges facing individuals and communities today. The creative arts can be seen as positive assets and resources contributing to the cultural vitality and wellbeing of any community, the building of social capital and the promotion of health.

Public Health for the 21st Century

Access to opportunities for cultural engagement, creative expression and worthwhile leisure activities, are fundamental human rights to be valued in their own terms but also for the contributions they make to wellbeing and health.

This book begins by providing a context in the development of public health as a discipline historically and the current concerns with health inequities and the social determinants of both illness and well-being. The historical context on the role of the arts in society and debates over the social utility of the arts are also explored. The book goes on to consider the place of the arts in different social settings and across the lifespan, and throughout concrete case studies provide insights into ways in which creative artists — in music, drama, the visual arts and dance are helping to address challenges to health and wellbeing in communities throughout the world.

With the introduction of the new Sustainable Development Goals, the scope of global maternal health targets has been expanded, moving from a focus on preventing maternal mortality to formulating targets and emphasising the importance of maternal health and well-being. This book introduces the new concept of maternal morbidity, suggests how this relates to maternal mortality, summarises what is known about the burden of maternal morbidity globally and what interventions and research are needed to improve maternal health during and after pregnancy, with an emphasis on the context of low and middle-income countries.
