This unit will examine the health and welfare systems in both developed and developing countries. A comparative focus will be taken to examine the different systems, and one emphasis will be on current debates over the appropriate means to evaluate and measure the outcome of their policies and programs. Students will be encouraged to investigate the history of these systems, their political, cultural, and economic constitution, policy and program variations, and the differential impact on factors such as equity, security, housing, education, health, and well-being.
