Module overview

This module provides a comprehensive overview of current issues and challenges in global health. Using relevant case studies, it will discuss trends and determinants of both communicable and non-communicable diseases, as well as assessing possible effective responses to key transnational health challenges. As part of this process we will analyse the complex relationship between global health, poverty and human development within the framework of the post-2015 Sustainable Development health-related goals.
