BIOS 60569 - Section 01: Topics in Global Health (CRN 15974)

Course Description:
Global health is concerned with both the interconnectedness and multidimensionality of health as well as with disparities in human disease across the world. The burden of disease occurs unevenly between and within countries; tackling these differences requires a critical understanding of the multivariate and complex determinants of health that range from the genetic background of individuals and populations through exposure to different environments and pathogens, social conditions, economic development, health systems and governance, and individual beliefs, attitudes and behaviour. It is also an example of a "messy" social problem, which requires new thinking regarding how best to intervene and transform such problems.This course is based on a mix of lectures, student-led seminars and group presentations, and is designed to introduce and critically examine the complex multidimensality of global health, as well as provide frameworks and skill sets to discover innovation and new governance measures to reduce its ill impacts.
