BHS 250 Global Health

3.0 Credit(s)
This course provides an overview of health around the world. An open systems approach frames the course with the assumption that health issues in one part of the world may have both a direct and indirect impact on people in other countries and areas. Global health is a security issue as well as a health concern. As the world and its economies become increasingly globalized, including international travel and commerce, it is necessary to think about health in a global context. Collecting and comparing health data from across the globe is a way to describe health problems, identify trends and help decision-makers set priorities Assessing the quality, quantity, and accessibility of health care delivery systems will be explored from policy and practitioner perspectives. Three lecture hours per week.
