43559-01 - Doctoral course: Medical Anthropology and Global Health 3 CP

Semester spring semester 2016
Course frequency Once only
Lecturers Brigit Obrist van Eeuwijk (brigit.obrist@unibas.ch, Assessor)
Content The flow of international aid from wealthier to poorer countries has increased dramatically over the last decade, and is attributable in part to the efforts of health activists, including medical anthropologists, who have rendered bare the realities of health disparities and human suffering. Emergent health problems demand global solutions, challenge the internal sovereignty of nation states, and involve new sets of actors, networks, partnerships and transnational health initiatives.As medical anthropologists we are committed to bringing a critical perspective to global health and to ensuring that the evidence-base that frames global health debates is inclusive and represents multiple dimensions of the human experience. In this PhD seminar, we examine reflections of prominent anthropologists on global health, discuss ethnographic case studies and examine our own research against this background.
Learning objectives The PhD students are aware of recent debates about global health and can position themselves in this controversial field.
