The fifth edition of Chronic Disease Epidemiology, Prevention, and Control has been updated. Its original content has been expanded to include new chapters on often overlooked chronic disease topics such as sleep and oral health. With an enhanced focus on health equity and social determinants of health, as well as the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on chronic disease prevention and control, this manual is bound to serve as an effective guide for public health practitioners.


This new edition provides an overview of current knowledge and best practices in the prevention and control of major chronic diseases and their risk factors. Chapter authors highlight many public health successes in which evidence-based interventions have resulted in improved health and the reduction or elimination of disparities. This book tackles some of the most important and vexing public health problems of our time, including how to cope with the rising tide of chronic illness, the need to view complex public health issues through a health equity lens, a growing understanding of the interplay between infectious and chronic diseases, and the importance of addressing risk factors throughout the life course along the continuum from health to illness and from prebirth to death.
