Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0963552260, Paperback)There is no substitute for longitudinal community-based studies to identify the multiple causative factors and the functional consequences of disease in a population. Unlike clinical trials, they probe for the host, agent, and environmental factors responsible for disease and suggest health related behavior that can reduce or eliminate the disease burden studied. Yet such studies are so difficult and costly to organize and sustain that relatively few are carried out. Moreover, their publication as monographs or multiple articles limits their accessibility to policy makers and to medical and public health professionals. This paperback describes relatively concisely five classical nutrition oriented field studies, one in Mexico, three in Guatemala and one in Haiti. For students they illustrate the steps involved in designing, implementing, and interpreting longitudinal, community-based health studies. Health professionals at all levels will benefit from the insights into developing preventive measures and evaluating their effectiveness.
