This book is written to fulfil the need of the students to have a textbook in Family Health. There are very few books on this subject which focus on the Malaysian scene. The subject of Family Health is a new one and covers a wide range of topics such as obstetrics, women’s health, children’s health, nutrition, health promotion, sociology, medical statistics, care of the elderly, school health, adolescent health and management. It is written in the public health point of view in the form of short notes taken from a wide range of sources, the language is simple and it is an easy book to read as such will be useful to the reader
While the book is written specifically for students in the Master of Public Health and Master of Medical Science in Public Health programmes; it certainly will be useful to many others including undergraduate medical students, the teachers and practitioners of public health as well.
