About the Book

This is the thoroughly revised and updated edition of the successful textbook, greatly acclaimed for its content, coverage and treatment of the subject. The Book aptly describes the basic principles and concepts of community medicine (preventive and social medicine) and attempts to develop epidemiological thinking, critical analysis, and positive attitude towards the discipline of preventive and social medicine. It makes use of real-life field situations of health-care delivery system to explain the varied aspects of epidemiology, health management, national health programmes, reproductive and child health, environmental and occupational health. Case study/caselet methods have been deliberately attempted to relate live field experiences with the text to enrich and facilitate learning the concepts and application of social sciences, behavioural sciences, organization behaviour, community diagnosis and behaviour change, and communication and health counseling.

Written in a lucid, easy to read style in a sequential manner, this textbook is intended primarily for the undergraduate and postgraduate Medical and dental students as well as the Nursing students. This book also aims to serve as a useful guide for teachers in community medicine, health administrators/managers, policymakers and decision-makers.
