Global health focuses on understanding healthcare in an international and interdisciplinary context. It includes the learning, research, and practice of medicine for improving health and healthcare equity for populations worldwide.
In this course, you will explore major global health challenges and their impacts on healthcare delivery systems. But, before you start examining these aspects of global health, it’s time to introduce yourself to your peers and your instructor.
In your initial post, address the following:
- Introduce yourself and identify your discipline. Include some information about your educational or professional background.
- What role do you currently play or plan to play in healthcare and healthcare systems? What significance does your role have on a healthcare team?
- How is your worldview of the “right to healthcare” informed by the scholarly evidence and your professional role? As much as possible, try to fairly, objectively, and briefly characterize consensus views related to this topic, while acknowledging areas where opinions diverge.
- Support any claims that you make with scholarly sources from the literature.
