Promoting Global Health
Course Code: HH/GH 4000
Course Date: July 17, 2023 to July 26, 2023
Course Instructor: Amrita Daftary
Students examine the evidence that while progress in achieving important global health outcomes has occurred, significant challenges remain to be solved. Global health issues impacted by such factors as poverty, gender inequality, international trade policy, climate-change, loss of biodiversity, food insecurity, war and displacement are explored as expressions of structural influences which perpetuate global disparities in health. Asking the question "What would it take to achieve health for all?" students identify pressing global health issues and the global health promotion strategies being used to address them.
