The third volume in the “Health Information” set, New Territories in Health focuses on the multifaceted spheres of influence or “territories” in the field of health.

This book includes nine contributions – based on the analysis of stakeholder logics – that approach the relationships between health and territories. The authors – all specialists – offer original insights, enhanced by in-depth studies, on the multiple forms that this territorialization takes: political and institutional, professional and organizational, public and media.
