This Global Comparative Lens course on Global Health will introduce students to the central concepts and principles of public health from an international perspective. We will focus on the critical links between global health and cultural, political-economic, and environmental trends, using the countries we visit as key examples of the larger themes. We will discuss local, regional and global patterns of health and disease, as well as the impact of local and global health interventions. We will study the burden of disease, risk factors, and key measures to address health and wellness in cost-effective ways in the countries we visit. The promotion of health equity, human rights, and social and environmental justice will be a theme throughout the course. Students will be encouraged to make observations of health-relevant factors on our country visits, and to bring these back for class discussion.
