Semester 2, 2013  |  Credit Points: 6

Coordinator: Cynthia Louise Hunter


This unit of study provides an integrated and interpretive approach to understanding the culture and politics of health development in middle and low income countries. The structures and processes which inform the politics and culture of health development are global, regional and local, and encompass and operate at different social and institutional levels in diverse settings. The articulation of these will be studied, along with the processes and transitions to local worlds which unfold in embedded cultural and social contexts.
