Reimagining Global Health: An Introduction

Paul Farmer, Arthur Kleinman, Jim Kim, Matthew Basilico, "Reimagining Global Health: An Introduction"
English | ISBN: 0520271971. 0520271998 | 2013 | EPUB | 504 pages | 15,2 MB


Bringing together the experience, perspective and expertise of Paul Farmer, Jim Yong Kim, and Arthur Kleinman, Reimagining Global Health provides an original, compelling introduction to the field of global health. Drawn from a Harvard course developed by their student Matthew Basilico, this work provides an accessible and engaging framework for the study of global health. Insisting on an approach that is historically deep and geographically broad, the authors underline the importance of a transdisciplinary approach, and offer a highly readable distillation of several historical and ethnographic perspectives of contemporary global health problems.

The case studies presented throughout Reimagining Global Health bring together ethnographic, theoretical, and historical perspectives into a wholly new and exciting investigation of global health. The interdisciplinary approach outlined in this text should prove useful not only in schools of public health, nursing, and medicine, but also in undergraduate and graduate classes in anthropology, sociology, political economy, and history, among others.

Global health Essay | Essay Global Health Crisis

Summary: Essay gives an analysis of the global health crisis.

The global health crisis has been a major problem in recent years, probably the worst it has been in modern history. The least developed countries are the main victims of this problem, and many people believe that more powerful developed countries are not doing enough or helping out to try and eradicate this problem. The most deadly infectious diseases that are taking over the populations and killing millions of people are malaria, pneumonia, tuberculosis, HIV/AIDS, influenza, diarrheal diseases such as cholera and dysentery, and respiratory infections. These diseases are seriously threatening the political and economic structures of many LDC's, such as South Africa, Latin America, South and Southeast Asia. These infectious diseases are also increasingly affecting Russia, China, Europe and the United States. The economic costs of infectious diseases, most notably HIV/AIDS and malaria, are having a significantly heavy affect on productivity, profitability, and foreign investment.

This is an introduction to Paul Farmer et. al.'s perspective on global health systems. It begins with making the case for a biosocial philosophy to underlie analysis of global health. The notion of "socialization of scarcity" was very interesting. Provides some history of. Read full review
