PHS 400 - Global Health


Course explores health and disease in global terms, considering the many overlapping issues associated with variations in the health and disease of individuals and communities ranging from poverty in the developing world to the most affluent areas of the industrialized societies, but with a special focus on the most vulnerable (poor, rural, migrants, refugees, minorities, and so on). It traverses such issues as how historical and cross-cultural perspectives help us understand and address contemporary disease, the causes and consequences of the massive health inequities we observe in the world today, and how global processes play out on the ground in local terms with real communities. Prerequisite: PHS 310 , PSYCH 132 , SOC 233 , PPS 350 . (3) T1 CE, T1 GP
