SCI 4095 Global Health

This course examines global health from an interdisciplinary perspective, critically examining the role that political, social, economic, and environmental factors contribute to global health outcomes. Topics such as health security, health inequalities, climate change, and nutrition, as well as communicable and non-communicable disease burden, will be examined. The course will review the literature on underlying factors that contribute to the disparities seen in health status among different populations and will be challenged to use evidence-based research to develop practical ideas to improve global health outcomes.
