Global Women’s Health Movements (Course # 01:988:407) examines how global political and economic institutions and policies impact health globally. The course investigates how women’s non-governmental organizations are transforming existing institutions and policies of global health governance such that people everywhere can lead healthier and more dignified lives.
Impacts of Economic Inequality on Women’s Health (Course # 01:988:408) investigates how domestic and global economic inequality place significant numbers of people at high risk for health crises even as they are denied access to care. This course investigates the “pathogenic” aspects of gender and economic inequality; how systems of unequal resource distribution contribute to wide disparities of health risk, access to healthcare, and clinical outcomes; and how global trade and transnational migration affect costs, healthcare delivery systems, and the availability of healthcare professionals.
