In Module 3, we discuss different health systems and ethics in global health. WHO recommends that health systems are evaluated by examining different essential building blocks, as described on p. 101 of Skolnik. In this assignment, we ask you to examine different health systems on the basis of some of those building blocks.
Each week, you will be asked to complete a homework worksheet. Weekly HW relate to key concepts and ideas introduced in the module lectures and readings. The HW are a way to demonstrate your understanding/comprehension of the major concepts. Most of the HWs will ask that you include data or work with data tables. Global health is a scientific field that uses data to help form policy, keep an eye on health issues in communities and worldwide and allow us to evaluate effectiveness of health systems and interventions.
