Product Description: Le Rapport sur la sant dans le monde 2006 expose l'analyse que font les spcialistes de la crise du personnel de sant dans le monde et propose des mesures de grande envergure pour y remdier dans les dix ans qui viennent en agissant ds maintenant.

En faisant entrevoir ce qui pourrait tre l'une des plus grandes avances en matire de scurit sanitaire depuis un demi-sicle le Rapport sur la sant dans le monde 2007 marque un tournant dans l'histoire de la sant publique.

Tous les jours des millions de tonnes de marchandises sont expdies dans le monde par voie arienne terrestre ou maritime. Chaque jour la circulation incessante des personnes et des biens porte en elle le risque de propager plus rapidement que jamais des maladies extrmement infectieuses et autres types de dangers.

Une crise sanitaire soudaine en un point du globe n'est plus dsormais qu' quelques heures de se transformer ailleurs en urgence de sant publique. Au cours des cinq dernires annes l'OMS a procd la vrification de plus de 1100 vnements de nature pidmique au nombre desquels figure une nouvelle maladie mortelle le SRAS ou syndrome respiratoire aigu svre qui a dclench une alerte internationale en 2003. Il existe aujourd'hui une menace relle et permanente de pandmie de grippe humaine qui pourrait avoir des consquences beaucoup plus graves sur le plan humain et conomique.

Le Rapport sur la sant dans le monde 2007 analyse parmi d'autres ces problmes qui remettent aujourd'hui en cause la scurit sanitaire mondiale et il pose la question de savoir comment crer les conditions d'un avenir plus sr. Il examine les possibilits qu'offrent pour la dfense collective certains instruments nouvellement labors et en particulier le Rglement sanitaire international rvis (2005) qui est entr en vigueur cette anne. Ce Rglement est conu pour assurer une scurit maximale vis--vis de la propagation internationale des maladies et sa porte a t largie pour couvrir tout type d'urgence ayant des rpercussions sur la sant l'chelle internationale notamment celles qui rsultent de catastrophes naturelles ou encore d'vnements de nature chimique ou radionuclaire qu'ils soient accidentels ou provoqus dlibrment.

En effet s'il est vrai que les risques sanitaires graves peuvent se propager rapidement et qu'ils le font effectivement rien ne circule plus vite que l'information. De plus en plus dots des moyens de communication les plus modernes et pouvant s'appuyer sur un maillage international de rseaux de technologies et de comptences - ainsi que sur des obligations lgales - les pays sont en mesure d'intervenir collectivement et avec promptitude la source mme des urgences sanitaires et d'en prvenir l'extension.

Crer les conditions d'un avenir meilleur est dsormais notre porte. C'est une attente collective autant qu'une responsabilit commune. A mesure que s'accroissent les causes et les consquences des urgences sanitaires les protagonistes de l'agenda scuritaire se diversifient. C'est eux tous que s'adresse le Rapport sur la sant dans le monde 2007 comme tous ceux qui sont attachs la sant publique.

FAQ'S

1. How do textbook rentals work?
It’s simple. Begin by searching for your textbook by ISBN (10 or 13-digit number that can be found on the back cover of each book), title, author or keyword. Next select how long you would like to rent the book then add it to your cart. Repeat for each book you’re looking for. After completing the order we’ll ship them to you and you’ll also receive a prepaid mailer. Return your books in the mailer by your rental due date.
2. Is renting a textbook better than purchasing it?
We offer both! You can buy or rent the book through Campus Book Rentals. It’s up to you to decide which option best meets your educational needs.
3. How do I track my order?
Login to your account here, you’ll see your current rentals listed textbook rentals listed with a yellow box that says “track”. Click the box to view the tracking number. *Not all books will have a tracking number since they may be sent from one of our partners. Tracking numbers will be updated as they become available.
4. How do I return my books?
When you rent textbooks from Campus Book Rentals you’ll receive a prepaid mailer. When it’s nearing your due date you’ll place your books inside the mailer and take it to the nearest USPS drop box or Post Office. If you don’t receive a mailer you can print a return label from your account. Return shipping is prepaid so please use either of the two methods to ensure they arrive at the correct facility.
5. Can I write or highlight in my book?
Of course! Just remember that future students will rent the same book after you, so please be respectful.

8. Do access codes or other supplements come with a textbook rental?
One time use access codes and other supplemental materials are NOT included with rental books and must be purchased separately.
9. What if I don’t return my rental?
If your book rental is not returned by the due date, your credit card will be charged a non-return fee, equal to the replacement value for the book.
10. Can I purchase my book after I rent it?
Certainty! You’re only charged the difference between what you already paid and the value of the book at the time you initially rented. Login to your account and choose to purchase your book and it’ll walk you through the checkout process.
