Spring for 2016-2017
Professor Amanda Glassman
This course provides an introduction to the policies, politics and effects of the main institutions working to improve health and health care in low- and middle-income countries (LMIC), and how LMIC governments and health markets have interacted with these agencies. The course will provide: (i) an overview of global health architecture and spending, including the multilateral development banks, the United Nations agencies, the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation and international non-governmental organizations; (ii) discussion of key policy issues and the incentives implicit in relationships between LMIC governments, private markets and global health agencies; and (iii) what we know about the effectiveness of global health and government/recipient efforts to reduce HIV/AIDS, malaria and TB incidence and to vaccinate young children.
