PHILGA04 - Global Justice and Health

Tutor: Dr James Wilson
Duration: 10 weeks
Term: 2
Teaching structure: Weekly two hour seminar

Course Description:

This course explores ethical questions in global health by connecting the literature in global health with recent writings in moral and political philosophy. The first half raises some more general issues about global inequalities in health and their causes, and then explores some central issues in moral and political philosophy, including the normative significance of nations, and human rights approaches to health. The second half looks at some more specific issues where philosophers have contributed to debates in global health, including the ethics of research in developing countries and access to pharmaceuticals.
