For your HSC 210 Cultural Practices project:
CIA The World Factbook - Country, people, and geographical information.
Demographic & Health Surveys - World's primary information source pertaining to men, women and families living in Africa, Asia, Latin America and the Caribbean. Primarily funded by the U.S. Agency for International Development.
From the World Health Organization (WHO), "The World health report, first published in 1995, is WHO's leading publication. The report combines an expert assessment of global health, including statistics relating to all countries, with a focus on a specific subject.
The main purpose of the report is to provide countries, donor agencies, international organizations and others with the information they need to help them make policy and funding decisions. The report is also offered to a wider audience, from universities, teaching hospitals and schools, to journalists and the public at large - anyone, in fact, with a professional or personal interest in international health issues."
