A Cross-Disciplinary Perspective on Healthcare Delivery in Low- and Middle-Income Countries
- Fall 20 (B)
A Cross-Disciplinary Perspective on Healthcare Delivery in Low- and Middle-Income Countries --- Healthcare delivery in low- and middle-income countries (LMICs) is influenced by a number of factors such as provider expertise, patient trust, access, financing, medication/treatment availability, policies, and evolving technologies. Some components vary from culture to culture, while others remain constant. Improvements in healthcare delivery in these countries will rely on a good understanding of the various disciplinary approaches to care and how they can vary between cultures. This course is designed to introduce students to the perspectives and challenges faced by people in disciplines and cultures that differ from their own and think critically about the effect of that understanding on their own discipline's engagement in healthcare delivery in LMICs.
