Medical Humanitarianism
AS.230.335 (01)

Humanitarian organizations play life-preserving roles in global conflicts, and have front-row views of disasters ranging from the 2010 Haiti earthquake to the 2011 Fukushima tsunami in Japan. Yet even while they provide vital assistance to millions of people in crisis, such organizations are beset by important paradoxes that hinder their capacity to create sustainable interventions. They work to fill long-lasting needs, but are prone to moving quickly from one site to the next in search of the latest emergency. They strive to be apolitical, yet are invariably influenced by the geopolitical agendas of global powers. How do such contradictions arise, and what is their impact upon millions of aid recipients around the world? Drawing on case studies from South Sudan to Haiti, this course addresses these contradictions by exploring how and why medical aid organizations attempt, and sometimes fail, to reconcile short-term goals, such as immediate life-saving, with long-term missions, such as public health programs and conflict resolution initiatives.

Global Health and Human Rights
AS.230.393 (01)

Is access to healthcare a fundamental human right? If so, then which global actors are obligated to provide healthcare to whom, and for how long? How do meanings of health and illness vary across time and place? And finally, how are human rights principles translated into frontline practice in order to promote well-being? This course takes a critical interdisciplinary approach to these questions through a series of global case studies ranging from humanitarian aid in post-tsunami Sri Lanka to anti-FGM (female genital mutilation) campaigns in Ghana. How do international NGOs, UN bodies, and governments collaborate (or compete) to distribute healthcare in places beset by dire resource shortages? Do human rights principles carry legal weight across borders, and if so, could access to healthcare services and essential medicines be litigated in order to compel governments to provide it? And finally, what cultural assumptions do human rights discourses carry with them, and what happens if rights-based approaches are poorly received by recipient populations? Moving beyond the basic principle of healthcare as a human right, this course aims to bring this idea’s history and politics into focus by offering an in-depth exploration of its ethics and implementation.

Global Health Principles and Practices
AS.280.380 (01)

Global health addresses the staggering global disparities in health status, drawing on epidemiology, demography, anthropology, economics, international relations and other disciplines. We review patterns of mortality, morbidity and disability in low and middle income countries, starting with malnutrition, infectious diseases and reproductive health, and continuing to an emerging agenda including mental health, injury prevention, surgical care, chronic diseases, and health impacts of climate change. Gender, health systems and health workforce challenges, and career trajectories in global health are also discussed. Recommended course background: Minimum of one prior course in Public Health.

What is the Link Between Oppression and Mental Health? Combining Theory, Concepts, and Empirical Science to Explain Minority Mental Health
AS.280.454 (01)

In this three-module course, students will first gain knowledge on the theoretical orientations that inform the social determinants of health, in combination with conceptual approaches in the field of trauma and violence research, in order to formulate a theoretical, conceptual, and empirical understanding of minority mental health. In the final module, students will study select mental health concerns (e.g., trauma, depression, anxiety, suicide) that affect specific minority populations, including discussions around the lived experiences of minority mental health. This culminates in a final group presentation on empirical research from an approved minority mental health topic of their choice that will be delivered as a TED-style talk. The course will run with graduate-level expectations. Students should anticipate weekly reading assignments to inform group lab presentations and discussions. There will be three brief individual writing assignments of 5 pages or less that critically analyze current minority mental health research. Upon completion of the course, students will be able to discuss minority mental health research with the necessary contexts of theory, research, and life stories that inform current public mental health approaches. Gordis Teaching Fellowship course. Priority registration is given to Public Health Studies majors. Other students will be permitted to register as space allows.

Policy, Politics, and Power in Health Equity
AS.280.452 (01)

Health disparities are avoidable, unjust differences in health opportunities and outcomes related to factors such as race and ethnicity, education, class, citizenship, disability, sex and gender identity, and sexual orientation. These disparities reflect the systems that distribute resources, privileges, and power across society and mediate exposure to physical and mental health hazards such as economic deprivation, discrimination, violence, unhealthy environments, uninsurance, and inadequate medical care. Health equity, which is often referred to as social justice in health, is an ethical value that drives efforts to eliminate these disparities. As the National Academy of Medicine asserts in each of its reports, “Knowing is not enough; we must apply. Willing is not enough; we must do.” The purpose of this course is to introduce students to essential concepts, literature, and policy issues related to health disparities and to prepare them to use their knowledge to build effective policy strategies in support of health equity. Gordis Teaching Fellowship course. Completion of AS.280.340/ Fundamental of Health Policy Management is recommended, but not required.Priority registration is given to Public Health Studies majors.

Vaccine Development, Epidemiology, and Hesitancy in the Modern World
AS.280.448 (01)

Immunization is one of the most cost-effective and successful public health measures available, but loss of public confidence in vaccines has resulted in the resurgence of vaccine-preventable diseases. This course will review the process of vaccine development and students will understand the use and utility of immunizations for disease prevention. Students will gain an in-depth understanding of the vaccines that have been successfully introduced into routine immunization schedules. This course will discuss post-licensure vaccine surveillance as well as current domestic and international policy issues in vaccine development, supply, delivery and utilization. We will also examine the origins of vaccine hesitancy and discuss the impact of “anti-vaxxers” on immunization coverage and the subsequent return of vaccine-preventable diseases. Students will have the opportunity to work in teams to critically evaluate multi-level interventions to target vaccine hesitancy and improve immunization coverage, and propose a recommendation that will reduce the morbidity and mortality of a specified vaccine-preventable disease.

Contemporary Social Movements in Public Health
AS.280.453 (01)

Health social movements attempt to alter power structures in order to achieve greater health equity, promote access to resources, and change perceptions of disease. But what distinguishes a moment from a movement? Under what conditions can health social movements lead to lasting policy and social change? Together we will explore a wide range of contemporary health social movements such as Black Lives Matter, MeToo, gun reform, US healthcare reform, environmental movements, and others. We will analyze the types of goals, resources, and tactics used in these movements and consider their contributions to the shaping of health-related policies and practices. Students will compose a brief and highly polished analysis of a health social movement of their choosing that may be suitable for publication. Gordis Teaching Fellowship course. Priority registration is given to Public Health Studies majors. Other students will be permitted to register as space allows.
