Course content

Global public health has become a subject of study across several disciplines, including biomedicine, political economy, sociology and anthropology, epidemiology and statistics, health services research, and policy studies. Law has also been amongst these, but has rarely been the focus of dedicated study in the context of global public health. Yet legal frameworks and instruments continue to evolve and to shape and influence both the content and delivery of standards and policy goals.
