It addresses several issues, such as: explanatory models for the causes and treatments associated with illness and disease; the relationship between nutrition, growth and development and health; effects of globalization and environment on disease and health; and the way social inequalities, religious beliefs, and political-economic contexts influence disease prevalence and access to health care services.

The main topics include the history of growth studies, genetic and environmental effects on growth, typical human growth patterns during all life stages, and the evolution of human growth patterns.
