Global Health and Culture

Global Health is emerging as a critical driver of world change and global sustainable development. This course explores the biosocial theoretical concepts and the historical contexts that are contributors to this shift and are influencing the establishment of global health as a stand alone discipline of study. This course focuses on challenging embedded assumptions about what actually supports good health and humane healthcare delivery and what actually causes poor health and disease in various cultures around the world. Topics include: history of 19th and 20th century medicine, population health, Global Burden of Disease, social health disparities, health care costs, indigenous healing cultures, contagious diseases, human rights, obesity, natural and complex disasters.
