Product Description

The main focus in the international health and development programming include: Environmental health, family planning, health systems, HIV/AIDS, infections diseases, maternal and child health and nutrition. As students living in a developed world, it can be difficult to grasp the magnitude of global health issues. Our system of governance has protected us from many of the ailments that developing nations face.

This health sector activity focuses specifically on HIV and AIDs and the way it has impacted the African continent. The resources and student activities included in this package are designed to encourage reflective, interactive and constructive discussions about how social, cultural, economic, environmental and political factors contribute to to the complexity and spread of HIV/AIDS.

Students will compare and contrast their lives against the African context to determine how the attainment of needs affects health development, standards and outcomes. This activity includes a structured lecture to introduce key concepts to the group. Then, using the resources provided, students will have the opportunity to identify methods for HIV/AIDS prevention. Students will be lead towards considering, through guided discussion, health from a global perspective, the way in which disease is impacted by human's basic needs and how people satisfy such needs. Students will then examine Maslow's Hierarchy of needs as a central method for understanding human behaviour in a global context. The final portion of the activity include the creation of concept map and in depth reflection.

This resource package was designed to help present this information effectively to students. Inside you will find the following:
