Globalization and health focuses on population health and on health issues that transcend national boundaries. This course will introduce students to the main principles and concepts in global health. It adopts a multidisciplinary approach to explore critical linkages between population health and socio-economic development on the one hand and the interplay of these factors within a global context. Special themes in global health will be examined by laying emphasis on how health outcomes differ in various geographic settings. The course will also explore possible approaches to improve the health systems at national and global levels from inter-related perspectives.
