Global Health: An Interdisciplinary Overview
Description:
Our globalized world has posed new challenges for global health. Infectious diseases have the potential to travel quickly and spread widely across countries (e.g. due to increased international travel). The determinants of health (such as the food system) are across country borders, leading to a growing burden in non-communicable diseases in both developed and developing countries. Issues in traditionally non health sectors such as climate change or trade can have dramatic and worldwide effects on health and health systems. These short examples illustrate what Global Health is about: issues that not only cross national boundaries but also disciplinary territories. In our interdependent world, more and more health issues cannot be addressed by a country nor by a sector alone and require collaboration, coordination and integration. The course will draw from academic personnel working across disciplines and the wider community in international Geneva (e.g. international organisations, NGOs). It will utilize an ecological or 'systems' perspective, along with a social determinants and human rights approach to health.

Curriculum /Topics Covered:
Infectious diseases, non-communicable diseases, mental disorders, relation of foreign policy and trade to health, research and development for global health, effect on environment on health, health systems
