This is the first book to critically examine the wider human implications of different types of health intervention in the third world, and draws together much material only otherwise available in policy documents and reports of international agencies such as the World Bank and the WorldHealth Organisation. The biological and social effects of these development-related interventions is looked at, and in particular, consideration is given to economic factors, and the implications of nutrition and water, and sanitation projects.
