Fall 2019

Taught By: Sakiko Fukuda-Parr and Manjari Mahajan

Section: A

CRN: 7482

Credits: 3

This course examines the political economy of global health and seeks to understand the causes of health inequities among people and countries around the world. To this end, it undertakes a consideration of powerful global institutions and rules that shape health outcomes. Crucially, it has a capacious understanding of global governance of health that considers the role of actors and policies that extend well outside the health sector. Case studies on international regimes of trade, intellectual property, food and agriculture, and environment are used to examine the complex ways in which globalization affects health. The course also examines international actors, strategies and rules that have emerged in response to the challenge of health inequities. It discusses the human right to health and other frameworks that provide different kinds of conceptual tools, technical interventions, and political strategies to address health crises. This course is co-taught by Professors Manjari Mahajan and Sakiko Fukuda-Parr.
