[Autom. eng. transl.] What is the overall context in which the problems of public health are framed? What are these problems, and what situations can be found in that context, to which of the characteristics that define it is possible to link them? How can we act to solve them? What general and more specifically health or medical actions can be implemented? Which professionals can be engaged in this effort? With which strategies is it appropriate to take action? What resources can you count on? What expertise does it involve? What specific interventions should be implemented? And how to evaluate yourself? A large number of different specialists answer these questions in the critical public health manual - doctors and non-doctors, health and non-health professionals, academics and local operators, from different regions, ages and experiences - providing the stimulus and tools to apply a look that is not preconceptively negative, but certainly profoundly analytical of Italian public health; and making an enlargement of vision, from the pure and simple illustration of phenomena, to the search for their meaning. The Manual, rather than a sum of knowledge, therefore presents itself as a proposal for their general contextualization, and identification of critical nodes of reflection to be reported not only to the operators who face them in daily professional practice, but also to the students who go to that practice preparing.
