Structural Approaches in Public Health

Marni Sommer, Richard Parker Routledge, 2013; ISBN: 978-0-415-50086-9 Browse selected content

Recognising the inadequacy of public health responses that focus solely on individual behaviour change to improve population health outcomes, this edited collection looks at health-related challenges from a structural paradigm. 

It explores:

  • what form structural approaches can take
  • the underlying theory of structure as a risk factor
  • the local realities, environments and priorities that public health practitioners need to take into consideration.

The book includes a chapter co-written by STRIVE Chief Executive Lori Heise with Paul Pronyk, Jennifer Schaefer and Marie-Andrée Somers, 'Evaluating structural interventions in public health: Challenges, options and global best-practice'.
