Good health is intimately linked with
personal happiness, productivity, the development of nations and the
advancement of people. Increasingly,
globalization processes influence the health of individuals, societies and the
functions of health systems.
This course explores major themes in global health,
including: health and poverty, the primary categories of global illness,
including communicable and non-communicable diseases, environmental health,
child health, women’s health, and health among refugees and displaced
populations. It focuses on the dual burden of communicable
and non-communicable disease experienced by much of the world’s population and
highlights the role of the health system and diverse global actors in responding
to the health needs of people worldwide.
As the deadline for meeting the Millennium Development Goals nears,
course participants will also reflect on life after the MDGs by exploring the
future of global health and trends in technical innovation in the fight for
better health. Through lectures, readings,
and assignments, course participants will be asked to think critically about the
health of the world’s population and to reflect on overcoming the challenges of
achieving good health around the world.
