    SCI 208H - Global Infections


    Credits: Four (4)
    Prerequisite: Honors status
    Global Infections will provide an overview of the biology of emerging and re-emerging infectious diseases. The course will also explore the effects of poverty, nutrition and politics on these diseases. In spite of advances in science and medicine, infectious diseases remain a leading cause of morbidity and mortality worldwide. While much of the recent focus has been on HIV/AIDS, tuberculosis, and malaria, close to one billion people are also infected with a variety of worms and other parasites and suffer from impaired development, stigma and medical complications. These diseases disproportionately affect the poor and are to a large extent responsible for the disparate life expectancy between developed and developing countries. However, only 10% of global research addresses the diseases responsible for so much human suffering. In addition, the significant social and economic challenges facing developing countries essentially ensure that health outcomes for their citizens will be poor. Strategies for addressing these challenges will be analyzed.
