This course examines global health disparities and the unequal distribution of disease, focusing on the health consequences of poverty, structural violence, and globalization. In addition, we critically examine the foundations of global humanitarianism and the complexities, constraints, and prospects for working collaboratively across borders to resolve global health problems. Readings will address how global health is constructed and represented, and why humanitarian endeavors (charitable, philanthropic, NGO, religious, etc.) have emerged as the preferred manner of addressing global health problems in the contemporary era.
