This medical anthropology course explores the field of global health, particularly the serious health problems facing Third World populations. The course provides an introductory survey of the basic issues and initiatives in global health over the past five decades as well as in-depth case studies. Five major areas of focus include:

  1. the history of global health development and bureaucracies;
  2. the political ecology of infectious disease;
  3. child survival;
  4. women's reproductive health; and
  5. men's health under "modernization."

The underlying purpose of the course is to develop students' awareness of the political, socioeconomic, and cultural complexity of health problems in so-called "developing" nations and the consequent difficulties of developing effective long-term solutions.
