Indigenous Public Health and Social Policy
Issues and practices associated with the governance of Indigenous Peoples' health through consideration of past, present and future experiences are explored. Students critically analyze health and social policy and the impact of colonization on the health of Indigenous Peoples. Governance for health is explored through an analysis of jurisdictional issues, existing health agreements and organizational structures. Students focus on the development of post-colonial models of policy and governance.
