Introduction to Global Health: Issues and Challenges NURS 521

School: Nursing
Credits: 3
Prerequisites: Requires graduate student standing or permission of instructor
Course Description: This course will explore the issues that directly or indirectly affect health in low and middle resource countries from an interdisciplinary approach. We will focus on global and public health concepts and on health promotion and risk reduction in countries to which students plan to travel for field work, or from which they have returned. We will consider how history, culture, politics and social institutions influence health and health systems. Lecture this year focuses primarily on Latin America and the Caribbean and Southeast Asia. Students who are not traveling are encouraged to use course assignments to explore how the issues being discussed impact health in another country of particular interest in them. The purpose of the course is to broaden the student's worldview and global perspective on health care issues. Emphasis for this course is on health equity among nations and for all people.
