ANTH 330 - Anthropology and Global Health (4)

Is health a basic human right? How is illness related to social inequality, poverty, and political conflict across the world? Are pandemics increasing in frequency and severity? This introductory course reviews cross-disciplinary approaches to the new field of global health and focuses on the unique contributions of anthropology to reveal the social, political, and cultural forces that underlie international patterns of health and disease.
