In recent decades, infectious diseases such as West Nile virus, Ebola, Zika, MERS, HIV, H5N1 and H1N1 influenza virus have jumped geographical boundaries and even species boundaries to emerge in new populations. This class offers an introduction to emerging and reemerging infectious disease and focuses on the underlying mechanisms of microbial emergence, epidemiology, and the strategies available to contain them. In this age of antibiotics and vaccines, why do millions die each year from infectious diseases worldwide? With new pathogens continuing to emerge, can we ever hope to win the battle? The emergence and re-emergence of infectious diseases involves many interrelated factors. Global interconnectedness continues to increase with international travel and trade; economic, political, and cultural interactions; and human-to-human and animal-to-human interactions. This course will address the biological mechanism of infectious disease and the socioeconomic and ecological factors that influence the outbreak of infectious diseases.

Public health impacts each of us on a daily basis, yet too few of us can explain exactly what it is ordescribe the numerous ways in which it “touches” our daily lives. For students interested in the healthsciences it is critical that you understand how public health has and continues to influence our collectivehealth. In this course you will acquire an understanding of the academic discipline of public health, majorpublic health problems, and public health systems intended to protect andmaintain the health of the public.The course will orient you to core principles of public health, including social justice, and provideopportunities for you to apply your knowledge of public health to address complex population healthproblems that affect the population. Course activities will challenge you to think critically about variouscomplex health problems while you compare, contrast and devise “solutions” or interventions to addressthem. This class will equip you with tools to begin to address the critical public health issues that face you,your community, and your world.

Course description: Some of the major global health challenges we will discuss include communicable and non-communicable diseases, as well as environmental, women’s, and refugee health issues. We will pay particular attention to health systems and the role these systems play in promoting health and development around the globe. The course is global in its scope, but the focus of many of our discussions will be on low- and middle-income countries, the health of the poor, and health inequity. The relationship between health and socio-economic development will be examined throughout the course. The course will expose students to concepts from social epidemiology, such as social determinants of health and the impact of various social, economic, political, and historical contexts on health.
