The text includes an overview of the most current best practices in the field and shows readers how to apply them to achieve successful results for their programs.
Throughout the book, the author puts the focus on three core management activities: developing/strategizing, designing, and leading health programs.

In addition, the author covers both commercial marketing, so critical to program sustainability, and social marketing, which many programs use to accomplish their missions of improving health.
