This course considers the relationship between health and development through the lens of development policy (in particular anti-poverty policy and the role of aid), inequality of access to primary health care, and the HIV/AIDS epidemic. Students are expected to write two short essays, conduct an exploratory analysis of inequality in access to primary health care, and (based on demographic modelling of AIDS) write a term paper on the impact of AIDS and related policy responses in an African country.
