Linkages among economic development, poverty, inequality and health
Direct and indirect effects of health in economic development
Although economic develoment, income inequality and poverty affect health of the population, there is no course in the School of Public Health that focuses on better understanding of the direct and indirect effects of economic development on health. Improvements in health status of population also affects the incidence and severity of poverty, socioeconomic inequality and economic progress. To improve health of population in an effective and efficient manner, it is important to understand the interlinkages among economic progress, poverty, inequality and health. This course will provide and overview of these interrelationships.
