PUBH 862: Fundamentals of Global Health

Fundamentals of Global Health will introduce students to crosscutting issues in global health through a series of cases, reports, videos and articles addressing communicable and non-communicable diseases, global health cooperation and diplomacy, and humanitarian emergencies, including that caused by climate change in the global and regional contexts in which they occur. The course will contextualize current efforts in global health and describe likely future trends. A major goal of this course is to equip students with some fundamental perspectives and resources they will need as public health professionals operating in a global context.
