This course provides an introduction to global health in our current society by considering how social factors influence population health globally. The course takes a transdisciplinary approach to examine layers of association, causation, and meaning beneath the burden of global diseases. It considers global health systems, the role of nations and international agencies, and how economic factors impact health status globally. Students will get a hand-on introduction to research strategies in global health, discuss and reflect on the most important global health problems in today’s society, and analyze policies to address the most persistent health problems in the world.
