Syllabus:

This course is aimed at introducing students to geographical and demographic perspectives in the study of health. It is concerned with providing students with the empirical knowledge, theoretical background and analytical studies to understand the linkages between the distribution and determinants of health related states and environment in populations. Such analyses involve both the examination of variations between different types of groups, socio-economic, ethnic, etc., and between different spatial areas with differing environmental characteristics and problems. There will be a particular focus on migration and health. While there is a focus on the Australian situation in the course students will also be introduced to some of the major population and health issues in Asia. There will not only be an emphasis on examination of health and disease patterns in populations but also on planning the interventions needed to address health problems.
