The aim of this course is to provide an understanding of the two-way interactive relationship between health and socio-economic conditions in developing countries. The emphasis in the course is not only on the economics of health and development but on a host of multidisciplinary dimensions related to these two areas. The class will begin with conceptual issues dealing with the nature of health, development and how they interact. It will then turn to an analysis of trends in health and development indicators. The remainder of the class will examine the interaction between health and development through a series of related issues including poverty and income, education, nutrition, environment, gender, fertility, culture and behavior, the impact of globalization in terms of neo-liberal policies, trade and capital flows and the urbanization and the growth of the informal economy and finally the effects of health changes on economic growth and development.
