PS 203: Global Health and International Development
|.75 CC units (3 semester hours)||Andrew Price-Smith|
Course Description: The world is beset with problems of poverty, malnutrition, disease and environmental destruction. This course analyzes the relationship between issues of global health (disease, malnutrition, unclean water) and the domain of international development. We bring together findings from history, biology, ecology, economics, and political science to generate knowledge that is greater than the sum of its parts. We examine how health and development may combine to set up virtuous spirals that accelerate trajectories of international development, and help people around the world to escape from cycles of intense poverty.
