From the Publisher:
Sick adults often consume more than half of all resources allocated to the health sector. This volume draws attention to the causes and results of disease and ill health in adults in developing countries and to the burden they impose not only on individuals but on their families and society as well. Researchers and policy-makers will find this work essential because of its useful data on adult morbidity and mortality, as well as its call for more information on problems and risk factors.
