Uitgebreide vaknaam Responsible Humanity: Global Health: 100-level: Diversity, Intersectionality and Global Health
Leerdoelen Upon the successful completion of this course, students will be able to:
- Analyze politics of diversity, and diversity in global health in particular
- Learn the key theories that examine inequalities in health outcomes
- Develop an overview of the multiple forms of inequalities (gender and identity in particular) that are compounding and shape health and wellbeing
- Analyze health interventions based on an understanding of how health issues –as we have today- have come about
- Develop skills in critical reading and critical thinking.
Omschrijving In this course we discuss how multiple forms of inequalities (particularly gender and identity) intersect and create obstacles for individuals to achieve health as a quality of life. As the first step, students learn to critically analyze diversity as a construct. Next, key theories and frameworks are introduced to understand the role of diversities in creating unequal health outcomes. Finally, we critically analyze health interventions based on an understanding of how health issues have come about and how applying intersectionality as a framework could help improving our policies and interventions.
