PUBH 201 - Introduction to Global and Multicultural Health


3 Credits
Why are some people in some countries so much healthier than others? This course will explore factors that explain the unequal distribution of health and disease in the world. The course will begin with an introduction to the language of global health: burden of disease, epidemiologic measures, cost-effectiveness, global health systems, and transitions countries face as they develop. Class topics will focus on indicators used in the Sustainable Development Goals, including maternal and child health, women’s health issues, infectious and chronic diseases, and nutrition. Students will examine relationships between global stressors such as extreme weather, war, economics, urbanization, and living conditions, and health of populations. (GI) (Core: Global)
