This book explores the impact of globalisation, economic policies, war and violence, trade and reproductive ideologies on global health and health services. It offers examples, both successful and unsuccessful, of international co-operative efforts to address these multiple issues, citing international collaboration of health professional organisations such as Jubilee 2000. It questions the efficacy, ideology and scope of several of the leading players, such as WHO, World Bank and many NGOs that are trying to address these issues, as well as pointing out the emergence of international organisations whose activities harm health, such as arms and tobacco traders. International Co-operation and Health focuses on those public health issues that cross national boundaries.
