The first edition was published in the year 2006. It had a good initial response (or wide acceptance of readers) from the market apart from few lacunae which has been added in this second edition to make it more relevant and updated for undergraduate medical students.

Designed primarily for undergraduate medical students, this edition includes an elaborate discussion on public health problems of Indian significance, namely, population overgrowth, human disasters, and emerging and re-emerging diseases. It also provides detailed description of public health practices, namely, immunization, disinfection and sterilization, notification, isolation and quarantine, public health surveillance, and population screening.
