This interdisciplinary course will use conceptual frameworks from Public Health and Human Rights perspectives to analyze the quality of women's lives in the context of rapid economic growth induced by privatization and globalization in India. Historical, economic, educational, religious, and cultural issues of India that relate to women's health and the attainment of the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) will be addressed. We will examine the intersection of how daily lives and roles of Indian women impact their health and well-being. Through directly interacting with activists, grassroots organizations, and communities in India, students will perform a social analysis (economics, culture, religion, social values, politics, etc.) to explore the reasons why health problems exist and will try to determine personal, organizational and community actions that lead to some resolution.
