Case Studies in Global Health: Biosocial Perspectives

Arthur Kleinman, MD, Harvard College Professor and Esther and Sidney Rabb Professor of Anthropology and Professor of Medical Anthropology, Harvard University., Harvard Extension School

This course examines, through lecturers and case-based discussions, a collection of global health problems rooted in rapidly changing social structures that transcend national and other administrative boundaries. Students explore case studies (addressing AIDS, tuberculosis, mental illness, and other topics) and a diverse literature (including epidemiology, anthropology, history, and clinical medicine), focusing on how a broad biosocial analysis might improve the delivery of services designed to lessen the burden of disease, especially among those living in poverty. The recorded lectures are from the Harvard Faculty of Arts and Sciences course Societies of the World 25. (4 credits)
