Women and Global Health (POPH90066)

Find the subject in the Handbook here. Schedule: September (Dual-Delivery)

Subject Description

Developing and newly-industrialised countries experience wide variation in terms of history, politics, demographic transition, development and epidemiology. This subject situates women and their health in a dynamic context of development, globalisation and change. It examines key health issues, primarily for women in the Asian and Pacific Regions, but also in other international contexts, and explores factors that impact on health and illness throughout the lifespan. Gender, rights and ‘empowerment’ provide frameworks for analysis.

A subject with lots of potential but unfortuantly very poorly organised and run by the coordinator. Run over 5 weeks (single day per week), however, the coordinator is a very high academic with little time to devote to the subject. As such, from the beginning, lecture content was not uploaded on time, marks and feedback for assignments were never dsitrubted (even upon submission of the final assignment), and our final assignment was a novel design without any proper instruction on how to complete (and coordinator basically ignored all emails towards submission date). The content itself is very interesting, but the coordiantor spends most of the time telling personal anecdotes than actual content teaching. I've come out of it feeling unsure…

Thank you for your comment. I strongly agree with you about the "telling personal anecdotes than actual content teaching" part
