This course will focus on health issues that transcend national boundaries and on regions disproportionately affected by poverty and ill-health. It will bring together participants to share experiences, and to further their understanding of the relationships between poverty, development, social and other determinants of health, and of global health emergencies. A series of case studies will be used to explore and illustrate these issues. Students will apply their learning to a global health priority area and develop a plan for a local intervention that contributes to improving global health.
