This book is the first full-length study of HIV/AIDS work in relation to government and NGOs. In the early 2000s, Pakistan’s response to HIV/AIDS was scaled-up and declared an area of urgent intervention. This response was funded by international donors requiring prevention, care and support services to be contracted out to NGOs – a global policy considered particularly important in Pakistan where the high risk populations are criminalized by the state.
Based on unparalleled ethnographic access to government bureaucracies and their dealings with NGOs, Qureshi examines how global policies were translated by local actors and how they responded to the evolving HIV/AIDS crisis.
The book encourages readers to reconsider the orthodoxy of policies regarding public-private partnership by critiquing the resulting changes in the bureaucracy, civil society and public goods. It is a must-read for students, scholars and practitioners concerned with neoliberal agendas in global health and development.

This is the book that has given thousands of sufferers new hope–a gentle, effective way to find real relief from back pain, without painkillers, without surgery, without spending days on end in bed. Dr. John Sarno’s revolutionary approach to back pain is based on his discovery that tension is the underlying cause of most back problems–leading to an often unrecognized condition called Tension Mytosis Syndrome. In this book–the first to explain the psychophysiology, manifestations, and treatment of TMS–you’ll find clear steps, sensible advice, and simple illustrations to help you find relief, prevent future pain…and live life fully once again.

The complexity of the pathophysiology of cognitive dysfunction has led to the use of therapeutic strategies to combat the disease. Proper diet, cognitive activity, and regular physical exercise can significantly help in improving brain health with advancing age and potentially reduce the risk of cognitive decline. This book presents various neurological conditions and their amelioration using nutraceuticals and functional foods. Research studies in a number of phytopharmaceuticals and medicinal plants demonstrate their efficacy in boosting brain health and physical well-being as well as preventing the initiation and progression of several neurological disorders.

This enterprising collection spans the breadth of primary care in multiple ways. Contributions from general practitioners, philosophers, nurses, physiotherapists, dentists, health economists, educationalists, patients and others reflect the rich variety that makes up primary care. Authors embrace the uncertainty inherent in the day-to-day reality of primary care, and practical advice sits alongside heartfelt accounts of issues that challenge practitioners. There is something here for everyone, whether the reader is looking for guidance on duties in primary care, a framework for analysing a difficult consultation, insights into the voice of the patient, or an understanding of the economics of primary care.
Wendy Rogers, Professor of Clinical Ethics, Macquarie University
With chapters revolving around practical issues and real-world contexts, this Handbook offers much-needed insights into the ethics of primary healthcare. An international set of contributors from a broad range of areas in ethics and practice address a challenging array of topics. These range from the issues arising in primary care interactions, to working with different sources of vulnerability among patients, from contexts connected with teaching and learning, to issues in relation to justice and resources. The book is both interdisciplinary and inter-professional, including not just ‘standard’ philosophical clinical ethics but also approaches using the humanities, clinical empirical research, management theory and much else besides.
This practical handbook will be an invaluable resource for anyone who is seeking a better appreciation and understanding of the ethics ‘in’, ‘of’ and ‘for’ primary healthcare. That includes clinicians and commissioners, but also policymakers and academics concerned with primary care ethics. Readers are encouraged to explore and critique the ideas discussed in the 44 chapters; whether or not readers agree with all the authors’ views, this volume aims to inform, educate and, in many cases, inspire.

This new and comprehensively revised third edition of Practical Interventional Cardiology, led by an eminent UK Cardiologist and supported by contributing authors from around the world, discusses the different interventional procedures by context and addresses current guidelines and ongoing trials, including European experience with non-FDA approved devices. It represents an extended practical reference for the Interventional Cardiologist, Fellows in training, catheter laboratory Nursing and Technical staff as well as the non-invasive Cardiologist and General Physician. Rather than providing detailed and exhaustive reviews – a criticism of many Interventional Cardiology texts – the purpose of this book is to present practical information regarding Interventional procedures and important topics in Cardiology. An emphasis on clarity, clinical relevance and up-to-date information has been favoured as well as discussion of points of controversy so frequently overlooked.”
