"The impact of health issues is complex, vast, and diverse-from the health effects of global warming to new strains of infectious diseases. Encompassing four volumes and containing more than 1200 articles, this comprehensive, interdisciplinary A-to-Z encyclopedia examines nearly 20 topics ranging from children's, men's, and women's health to diseases, procedures and therapies, and research. Coverage is global: the set gives various countries' health statuses and compares the mortality rates of infectious and noncommunicable diseases in both developing and developed countries.
