Infectious disease has affected world history more extensively than most of us can imagine. This course will examine infectious disease as both a mirror reflecting macro historical process and a causative agent of change in governance for health. It will be divided into three parts. Part I examines the historical impact of infectious disease. Part II examines how human responses to infectious diseases transformed global governance for health. Part III features student presentations with regard to infectious disease and global health governance. By taking this course, students are expected to not only obtain an in-depth understanding of the impact of infectious disease but also learn to use some important analytical tools to study global health governance issues.
