About the product

This publication contains a selection of the papers that were presented at the Seminar on Emerging Issues of Health and Mortality, held in Bangkok. The papers provide both a broad view of the mortality situation in the region and country-specific profiles of various aspects of mortality. The publication addresses issues and emerging challenges by focusing on the relationship between health and mortality; infant, child and adult mortality (maternal mortality); shifts in age and disease patterns; and health-care systems and health care of older persons.
