Program Description:
NCE326 Health Care in Central America
This course offers an introduction to the field of international health, using Central America, in general, and Guatemala, specifically, as a focus of study. After an overview of the history, geography, cultures, and political tendencies of Central America and Guatemala, students will analyze and compare the health delivery systems of the United States with those of Central America and some select other countries. Students will identify factors that impact public health, shape public health policy, and what formal processes are or can be used to impact positive change in overall health and health care delivery. We will view health from a systemic and community perspective to gain perspective in how individuals can empower themselves to improve health care provision as well as interact with the larger societal system to impact change. The semester long course will serve as preparation for students to participate in a direct service health project experiences in Guatemala. During the two week immersion in Guatemala, students will visit local communities and participate in service projects targeting childhood, adult, and geriatric health issues. Students will also tour natural and historical points of interest, as well as health provision organizations in the public and private sector to further explore the Guatemalan culture and health system. Travel is tentatively scheduled for May 11-24 2018.
