Disease prevention/treatment and saving lives are two of the six areas of focus of the Rotary Foundation. At the World Bank, these areas are covered under the Health, Nutrition, and Population (HNP) Global Practice. This page provides links to selected open access World Bank publications on HNP. The hope is that these resources will be useful to Rotarians and others working on health-related projects. The focus is for the most part on books published since 2010 as opposed to working papers, journal articles, and briefs. The publications were selected as a resource for participants at the 2016 Rotary Presidential Conference on Disease Prevention and Treatment in Cannes, France. A paper including abstracts and pictures for the selected publications is available on the Blog Series page of this blog.
The World Bank publications listed below cover nine main areas as follows: Access to Care and Universal health Coverage; Healthcare Delivery and Health Systems; Health Sector Workforce; Demography, Population, and Ageing; Private Sector Health Provision; Disease Control; Health Indicators; Nutrition; AIDS, Tuberculosis, and Malaria. Many of the publications include at least some economic analysis of health, nutrition, and population issues since this is one of the areas where the World Bank tends to have a comparative advantage.
Please note that this compilation of recent publications is provided as a service to Rotarians and others working on these areas without any endorsement of the World Bank as to which publications should be featured.
