International Health Issues
This course examines environmental, ethical, socio-economic, and political aspects of international health from a healthcare management perspective. Increasingly, the determinants of health and well being in the United States are not confined to our national boundaries. As part of a global community affected by world commerce, politics, and technology, we are exposed to health threats that can spread easily across borders and continents. This requires an understanding of contemporary global health issues and the complex ways in which social, economic, political, and environmental factors shape twenty-first century healthcare challenges and solutions.
