Health is something that is contested at local, national and global levels and can impact on social, environmental, economic and political decision-making. This unit of study provides an opportunity for indepth examinations and critical reflection upon how diversity, social justice, equity, ethics and morality influence individual and community health status and health opportunities. These considerations are situated within the context of a number of social theories which provide a lens for empathetic but critical analysis of the world in which we live. Students will explore a multitude of contemporary factors that contribute to health inequity with a specific focus on the health needs of those for whom health is often perceived (and engaged in) as a privilege not a right.
