Course Description: This course will examine the particular and unique health and public health vulnerabilities experienced by international migrants and border populations, including those related to water and sanitation, infectious diseases, diagnosis and management of chronic conditions, injuries, reproductive health, and mental health. It will explore specific challenges in providing universal access to quality preventive and curative care experienced in such displaced individuals and groups, including political, cultural, financial, language, and security issues; and how provision of services may or may not be incorporated into the health systems of the receiving country; as well as how gaps may be filled by international or national NGOs and other organizations and agencies. The course will further consider the special implications of displacement on women’s and children’s health. One week of residential field work in a site identified by SGS will allow students to explore first-hand the realities of health challenges in a migrant/ border population, and to identify and explore, working as teams, innovative ways of addressing a specific health challenge or problem.
