Abstract: Elaborates a powerful new health strategy that takes its driving force from the intrinsic value of health. The first chapter shows how a concern with equity in the distribution of health services operates as the unifying theme for a policy of intersectoral collaboration. Basic principles are then applied to conditions in three sectors where linkages to health have been clearly demonstrated in a wide variety of situations. These are agriculture and nutrition, education and culture, and the environment, including sanitation, habitat and industry. For each, the book uses numerous practical examples and case studies to explain how activities within that sector can either create new health hazards or enhance health status. Finally, by citing the real economic and social benefits attained in real situations, the book makes a strong case for the value as well as the workability of intersectoral collaboration
