This is the first time that the whole public health and health care experience from an Olympic Games has been incorporated into one comprehensive publication. The book contains strategic, technical and scientific information about epidemiological surveillance, environmental management, emergency and hospital care preparedness for the potential deliberate use of explosives, biological and chemical agents or radionuclear material, disease prevention as well as coordination and unified command.

It also highlights that mass sports gatherings such as the Olympics can be powerful platforms for promoting health messages, especially physical activity and active living, healthy nutrition and avoidance of smoking. Finally, it synthesizes the conclusions and lessons learned and offers insights and strategic points for future organizers of mass gatherings.
