The term global health refers to an aspiration and a set of problems.  As an aspiration, global health seeks to unite biosecurity, humanitarian, and philanthropic efforts to rid the world of disease.  Seen as a set of problems, global health is more unruly.  Deciding when an epidemic becomes a global emergency, or calculating the economic value of healthy childbirth, is anything but straightforward.  Drawing on critical texts from medical anthropology, science studies, and allied fields, this course asks: What is the relationship of global health to colonialism and empire?   How do market and political actors shape health interventions?  Finally, what is the future for global health in the context of a changing climate?
