Further Information from 2009-10 Lisa Mills syllabus below

This course examines particular issues in global health such as the HIV/AIDS crisis, but focuses more on the context of problems and issues in global health, particularly the international financial institutions’ involvement in health sector reform in the developing world, the establishment of multilateral market partnerships, and the influence of ‘emerging’ nations.

At the end of the course, students should have been introduced to, and have an understanding of, debates regarding:

- the dimensions and determinants of health

- the various models of health insurance and their implications for the developing world

- structural adjustment and its impact on health reform and health outcomes

- cultural dimensions of health and illness
