Description

Examines the lessons for global and community health that are emerging from our experiences of COVID. These experiences have been characterized by vast variations in exposure and vulnerability as well as wide variations in response and resilience. All these variations teach us much about inequalities in global and community health, but they also highlight new opportunities for addressing injustice and restoring health as a shared human right. By treating the pandemic this way as portal for the re-imagination and remaking of global and community health, the course focuses on moving systematically from evidence about disease, its inequalities, and policy responses to ideas about improving health outcomes both locally and globally.

Class Notes

This course involves a mix of prerecorded lectures from 15 different faculty, experts in their field, as well as regular weekly synchronous sessions with Professor Sparke. See course video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l2Y7MzkKGXg
