The course will explore the key concepts and forms of critical reasoning used to discuss the ethical an political appropriateness of efforts to address the health and wellbeing of communities and populations. It will engage students in reflection and debate about a range of contested issues that arise in public health policy and practice (including the provision of state funding for health services). The selection of issues will depend partly on topicality and on student interest but might include, for example: notions of responsibility in 'lifestyle', corporate and state behaviours; compulsion in the management of communicable diseases; fairness in responses to social/global inequalities in health.
Sorry, we don't have that information available.
