Course Description

One of the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals is to ensure healthy lives and promote wellbeing for all at all ages.  This course adopts a case study approach to reflect on the church’s role in promoting the ideal of good health and well-being for all.  Students explore church-based strategies to confront communicable and non-communicable diseases and analyse the effects of intersecting systems of gender, poverty and life-style choices.  We discuss the importance of access to early screening, good nutrition, immunization and education in developing relevant church-based health care models and also evaluate the impact of cultural influences on patients’ attitudes regarding stigma and discrimination.  There are also opportunities for students to reflect on choices patients make with respect to health care providers and remedies, and to start formulating ways to assess and integrate Christian understandings of healing, cure, health and well-being into sustainable community approaches.
