ANTH 202 Global Health and Culture

"Health for all" has long been a stated goal in global society. The achievement of this goal, however, necessitates a complex understanding of the many social, ecological, economic and political factors that affect the constantly changing health of a given population. This course investigates these factors using contemporary case studies in global health practice, paying particular attention to theoretical approaches used in the discipline of medical anthropology. Students will come to better understand causative factors associated with communicable and non-communicable diseases worldwide, traditional and new approaches to treatment and health promotion, and best practices for engaging in efforts at improving health outcomes within and between global cultures.
