A historical review of the human rights approach to health will ground the course and Requiredoduce students to the social determinants of health. From there, students will investigate the role of aid agencies, government, non-governmental projects, and grass roots efforts to tackle the inter-related problems of disease and poverty that are compounded by rapid urbanization and globalization.
