    The history of public health has focused on direct relationships between problems and solutions: vaccinations against diseases, ad campaigns targeting risky behaviors. But the accelerating pace and mounting intricacies of our lives are challenging the field to find new scientific methods for studying community health. The complexities of place (COP) approach is emerging as one such promising method. ℗ℓ Place and Health as Complex Systems demonstrates how COP works, making an empirical case for its use in for designing and implementing interventions. This brief resource reviews the defining characteristics of places as dynamic and evolving social systems, rigorously testing them as well as the COP approach itself. The study, of twenty communities within one county in the Midwest, combines case-based methods and complexity science to determine whether COP improves upon traditional statistical methods of public health research. Its conclusions reveal strengths and limitations of the approach, immediate possibilities for its use, and challenges regarding future research. Included in the coverage: ℗ℓ Characteristics of places and the complexities of place approach. The Definitional Test of Complex Systems. Case-based modeling using the SACS toolkit. Methods, maps, and measures used in the study. Places as nodes within larger networks. Places as power-based conflicted negotiations. ℗ℓ Place and Health as Complex Systems brings COP into greater prominence in public health research, and is also valuable to researchers in related fields such as demography, health geography, community health, urban planning, and epidemiology. ℗ℓ

    Based on twenty-four months of fieldwork, this dissertation explores how welfare -- the provision of social goods and supports -- is being configured through transnational medical intervention and public health policy in Mozambique. My research was concerned with how a variety of techniques, diagnoses, and criteria were used to mediate families' access to care and social supports as well as with the kinds of social and material opportunities these interventions made available. In a context marked by material scarcity far beyond the well-defined clinical criteria through which medical welfare supports were channeled, I was interested in how a variety of differently situated actors -- including health planners, donors, psychologists, counselors, and nurses, members of patients associations, volunteers, family members and patients -- defined, diagnosed, and accessed welfare needs. I also aimed to trace how legal and ethical norms structured and emerged out of these new welfare assemblages, and asked why and how contested, gendered family relationships came to be a privileged locus for these medical-social interventions. I investigated how planners, workers, patients and families negotiated institutional and everyday practices of care in order to understand how new modes of diagnosis, treatment, care, and social support for children and patients are taken up across a range of institutional and non-institutional sites. Based on this research, I argue that medical welfare interventions instantiate a new mode of governance in Mozambique, one in which the state not only provides services but also (even primarily) coordinates non-governmental endeavors and constitutes individuals and communities as available for humanitarian intervention. As a result, new forms of claims-making and claims-denying, including and beyond citizenship claims, are emerging in medical welfare spaces, as diagnoses of individual and community "vulnerability" become means of mobilizing new forms of care and material resources. Crucially, I suggest, these dynamics are shaped not only by contemporary development practice but also by historical legacies of colonialism, conflict and intervention that have shaped the politics of biomedical knowledge and transnational aid in contemporary Mozambique.

    Why are some societies more successful than others at promoting individual and collective well-being? This book integrates recent research in social epidemiology with broader perspectives in social science to explore why some societies are more successful than others at securing population health. It explores the social roots of health inequalities, arguing that inequalities in health are based not only on economic inequalities, but on the structure of social relations. It develops sophisticated new perspectives on social relations, which emphasize the ways in which cultural frameworks as well as institutions condition people's health. It reports on research into health inequalities in the developed and developing worlds, covering a wide range of national case studies, and into the ways in which social relations condition the effectiveness of public policies aimed at improving health.
