It provides fundamental concepts in health such as the current epidemiological trend in East Africa, comprehensive versus selective PHC, emerging and re-emerging diseases, social health insurance and a critical analysis of whether health for all has been achieved.The components of this book form a basis for critical and reflective analysis about the approaches that best suit the health concerns of the East African countries, especially for individuals, public health practitioners, students and institutions whose aim is to promote health at community and individual level. The book has a balance of both PHC technical terminologies with a regular-friendly language and practical illustrations which make it an easy and interesting read, not just for public health professionals, but for any user.
