Poverty continues to touch the consciousness of humanity, challenging our piety, and questioning our concerns about equality and the plight of societys least fortunate people. This book amplifies the hopelessness of the poverty stricken masses in a world of plenty, and links poverty to a chain of problems in the campaign to stop this crisis, indicting the traditional approaches that have failed to accomplish established objectives.

Through a variety of examples and viewpoints, this compelling book encourages not just worldwide humanitarian groups, but individuals as well, to confront the elements of poverty if global health is to be improved or realized, while accepting the truth that success will take a long time and is dependent on collective will, commitment, governance, and a concerted unified effort in a world fraught with uncertainties. Dr. Don A. Franco has degrees in veterinary medicine and public health, and is board certified by the American College of Veterinary Preventive Medicine with an interest in the diseases transmissible from animals to man (zoonoses).

He has also been an ardent advocate of the One Medicine concept, convinced that the continued progression of medicine necessitates a concerted interrelatedness between veterinary medicine and human medicine in the challenging quest for the prevention and control of zoonotic diseases that the global poor are most at risk from.

He has had adjunct faculty appointments at both veterinary and medical institutions, and has published extensively over the years, receiving a Superior Service Award from the Secretary of Agriculture in 1990, For notable authorship which has brought national and international recognition to the U.S.

Department of Agriculture, Food Safety and Inspection Service, an agency that he served for twenty-five years.
