An Introduction to Global Health - Health Determinants (10:40)
Rating

What determines our health? Why does life expectancy differ so much from country to country, or even from one group to another in the same country? Well, there is no easy answer to these questions. There are many factors that play a part in determining the well-being of the population, or even of an individual. In global health, we call these factors determinants of health. Determinants of health interact with each other, and influence our health status is in numerous ways, in turn influencing our well-being, morbidity, mortality, and life expectancy. As you already know, the first and most important health determinant is income. Income of an individual or a household, but also income of the country a person lives in. Other important health determinants are education, access to water, diet, environment and many more. In this presentation we will look closer at how health determinants determine an individual’s health, and how different health determinants interact with each other.

An Introduction to Global Health - Health Indicators (13:06)
Rating

No matter what your area of interest is, you need to know how to evaluate your subject, how to measure it. Global health is measured using something we call health indicators. To understand how a population in a country, or in a region, or even a part of a city is doing, you need to know its health indicators. How long do people live in this country? How many children die before they reach their fifth birthday in this city? What is the weight of children and adults in the northern part of the country? How many women die in childbirth in the country? Once you have looked at these numbers and compared them with other populations, you can make sense of the health situation of a population. In this lecture you will some basic health indicators, and also how the data is collected.
