Health in the Americas, formerly Health Conditions in the Americas, is the authoritative encyclopedia of health indicators and trends in the Region. Published every four years by the Pan American Health Organization (PAHO), this two-volume reference offers an exhaustive analysis of the health situation in the entire Region of the Americas.

Volume I explores the Region's health situation in five chapters. This regional analysis examines public health trends, the health status of various population groups, major diseases and health problems, the health sector's response to these conditions, and the status of external technical and financial cooperation destined to health. Volume II presents the most current data on the Region's 45 countries and territories, from the perspective of each country's socioeconomic and demographic context, and sketches their health prospects for the immediate future.

This latest edition of Health in the Americas, as did its predecessors, fulfills PAHO's mandate to inform its Member Governments about health conditions and trends in the Region. This compendium is also a practical tool for a broad range of professionals and students--from epidemiologists to social researchers and government workers to journalists. A must-have reference for medical and public health libraries everywhere, Health in the Americas should meet the needs of everyone interested in obtaining the most complete and accurate data on health in the Americas.
