  1. Population and Health : An Introduction to Epidemiology.

    Fascicule - En anglais

    Epidemiology (epi, upon ; demos, people ; logos, study of) is the study of our collective health.

    Epidemiologists contribute to the health and longevity of the population by identifying high-risk population groups, helping find the causes of disease or injury, and by evaluating prevention programs.

    This Population Bulletin reviews the history of population-based health science, explains the methods and materials of contemorary description and analytical epidemiology, and discusses the ethical issues health scientists must face.
