About this series
This new series examines determinants of health from a cross-cultural perspective. The focus of this perspective is on factors which could influence and determine the health and well-being of people. These factors include biological and genetic factors; health behaviors; socio-cultural and socio-economic factors and environment factors. This series fills a gap by including books which are research-based and contain diverse issues relevant to determinants of health including emerging health issues, such as HIV/AIDS and other infectious and non-infectious diseases/illnesses from a cross-cultural perspective. Volumes in the series will be a valuable resource for researchers and students in sociology, quality of life studies, anthropology, medicine, public health, social work and medicine.
