Spring 2 2008

Dr. D. Canning
2.5 credits
Lectures. Two 1.5-hour lectures each week.

The objective of this course is to prepare students with doctoral-level knowledge in theory and research methods that economists apply to studying international health and health policy issues. The major topics covered include: economic growth and health and well-being (happiness), health and income inequality, socioeconomic gradient of health, household production function, health system paradigm, health system performance determinants and measurement, financing and delivery in low-income and transitional economies. For each topic, we will examine the underlying theories, empirical findings, methodological issues, data sources/problems and gaps in existing literature. In addition to standard economic models, we will also examine models that explicitly incorporate sociology and psychology. This course can be taken as a sequence with PIH294, International Health Economics I, or as a stand-alone course.
Course note: PIH291 or signature of instructor required. (5.06)
