Gender and Global Health
Crosslisted as SOCIOL 212

This course will examine the interconnections among gender, poverty, and health. It will adopt a global perspective on these issues, with a focus on low- and middle-income countries as well as the United States. We will learn that health has more to do with social location than with biology; it is something that is enjoyed by the privileged and struggled for by the socially marginalized. Further, among the most important social determinants of health are gender, race and class, and it is very challenging to disentangle their respective effects. They help shape vulnerability to disease and poor health outcomes. They help explain access to care as well as the consequences of illness and disease. They help account for what we consider to be health problems in the first place. And, they must be addressed if efforts to promote health are to be successful in the long term.

We will learn that health has more to do with social location than with biology; it is something that is enjoyed by the privileged and struggled for by the socially marginalized. Further, among the most important social determinants of health are gender, race and class, and it is very challenging to disentangle their respective effects. They help shape vulnerability to disease and poor health outcomes. They help explain access to care as well as the consequences of illness and disease. They help account for what we consider to be health problems in the first place. And, they must be addressed if efforts to promote health are to be successful in the long term.

History of Global Health

nThe course begins with the development of ancient medicine in Europe & China, and continues into the rise of biomedicine (e.g. laboratory science & microbiology) in the 19th and 20th centuries. Particular diseases illustrate important themes, such as the role of warfare in medical developments, the creation of international policy to control disease, and how non-Western societies intersected biomedicine. We trace global circulations of people and commodities to show how international agencies, charities and governing bodies have spread both disease and the means to fight it. Medicine has always been a global undertaking, and its history prepares us to address emerging health crises. Instructor: Humphreys
