23 Scopus citations


States of Disease examines how human health is produced by spatial processes that are shaped by the interactions between social and ecological systems. Within a political environmental context, the book discusses differential vulnerabilities of the spread of infectious disease and exposure to non-infectious disease. Through an examination of HIV/AIDS in South Africa and flooding variability in the Okavango Delta of Botswana, States of Disease addresses differential exposure to health threats and the conditions that support healthy decision-making.
