Past decades have seen great advances in attempts to reduce the problems of smoking, uncontrolled blood pressure, advanced stage uterine cancer, and cardiovascular morbidity and mortality. However, the current growth of socially-related problems have off-set such positive developments. This volume examines the growth of such problems, all of which have social influences as their major components. Topics discussed include AIDS, alcohol abuse, disability and death resulting from "crack" addiction. Covering policy, theory, research and evaluation, the book identifies that co-operation between the health and social services is the best possible solution. While only representing a small percentage of current health problems, they are also the most rapidly growing sectors of health-related costs to society.
