Addressing Population-Health Needs on a Global Scale

The pursuit of health for all in the 21st century is a global responsibility. This course is designed to examine the most critical global health issues and provide the student with a systematic approach to understanding them within the framework of human rights and social justice. The course will explore the link between social equity and health disparities existing globally and locally within countries; the epidemic of infectious diseases and the emergent epidemic of noncommunicable diseases; and the role and responsibility of the nursing profession to address these population health needs with both individual and cooperative strategies.
