Global Health and Social Justice
Credits: 3
Grad Meth: Reg, Aud
This course evaluates the relationship between social justice and population health through critical discourse analysis of social determinants of health and applications of community-based methods for reducing population health inequities within and across national borders. The class aims to stimulate students' critical analysis to identify, describe, measure and apply consequences of injustices in population ill-health exposures and practices (policies, interventions and services). Students will apply critical thinking about how social injustices create preventable health disparities, unequal social determinants, poor environmental exposures and diseases among vulnerable populations in much of low income countries.
