NURS 854 — Glob,Cul&Womn Hlth
Section 001, LEC

Instructor: Low,Lisa K; homepage

FA 2007
Credits: 3

This graduate seminar will examine global perspectives on women's health, with an emphasis on the interaction of personal with structural (e.g., social, political, economic, cultural) factors. Personal factors include both biological and psychosocial conditions; systemic factors include social, economic and political structures. Particular attention will be devoted to understudied issues and the effects of gender based assumptions and traditions for women at high risk for poor health. Analysis of women's health issues within a global context will draw on feminist, social justice and human rights traditions. The influence of global health policy on local community provision of and experience of women's health care will be considered. Issues of measurement, accurate representation, evaluation design, data collection and analysis will be discussed as methods of informing international policy development focused on women's health. During the academic term, we will discuss the role of women as recipients, active participants in, and providers of care with a goal of critiquing and developing theories about the state of women's health worldwide.
