Description
This course explores the history of global public health from 1850-present. It focuses on the social, political, economic, environmental, and cultural factors that have influenced the development of global health generally and also shaped specific interventions and policies. What are the political and economic roots of health disparities? Why do interventions succeed or fail and what are their long-term consequences? What can we learn from studying the continuities and disparities between modern global health policies and past programs? Historical analysis of theory and practice provides crucial perspective on the field.
