Risking your health: Causes, consequences, and interventions to prevent risky behaviors (e-book)

Behaviors that pose risks for an individual's health and that also represent important threats for public health, such as drug use, smoking, alcohol, unhealthy eating causing obesity, and unsafe sex, are highly prevalent in low income countries, even though they are traditionally associated with richer countries. Individual choices are an important part of the risky behaviors.

Risking Your Health: Causes, Consequences, and Interventions to Prevent Risky Behaviors explores how those choices are formed and what are their consequences. Of great interest to policy makers, academics and practitioners, this book assesses the efficiency of those interventions designed to reduce the prevalence of behaviors that endanger health.
