The 1st iPRI scientific publication is available

August 26, 2011

iPRI is pleased to announce the publication of the first in a new series “iPRI Scientific Publication”. This first book is a textbook on Epidemiology and Biostatistics of chronic diseases. iPRI acknowledges the need for capacity building in Public Health and Epidemiology worldwide, particularly in lower-resource settings. Therefore a special course was developed and is held yearly together with the University of Dundee. This book is a collection of the issues and topics covered in its training programmes. It provides an introductory to intermediate level of principles and methods in Epidemiology and Biostatistics. It can be seen as one of the most up-to-date and modern textbooks of its kind.

Epidemiology is the cornerstone of Public Health and can be viewed as the scientific study of health and disease in populations. Key roles include the establishment of disease registers to assess the burden of specific diseases and their temporal trends in populations: identifying determinants of disease and outcome; organising and interpreting studies to implement prevention measures in populations, once preventable causes have been identified.

The book is aimed at providing students and junior health workers from all over the world, but especially those from lower-resource settings with clear and concise examples in the subject areas.

The book can be purchased directly from iPRI by sending a request email through our “Contact us” form. 

The price is €80 for students from high-resource countries, €60 for those from upper-middle income countries, €40 for students from lower-middle income countries and finally €20 for students from low-income countries using the definitions of the World Bank (excl. packaging and shipment).
