I am a professor of the practice at the Indiana University Richard M. Fairbanks School of Public Health, Department of Global Health. My teaching agenda in the Doctoral Program in Global Health Leadership (DrPH) centers on global health funding and leadership issues as these relate to institutional contexts such as those associated with the World Health Organization, World Trade Organization, World Bank and others with a bona fide mandate to develop durable health systems.
In my teaching, I integrate key historical events as well as current precepts of economic policies projected by donor nations. I bring in a broad historical context specifically relevant in the discourse of global health, as this serves to help others to better comprehend the North-South schism of universal health inequality.
As global health increasingly incorporates environmental concerns, my courses take into consideration normative institutions as defined by the English School of International Relations and the role these play as change gents in global health governance. I encourage my doctoral scholars to go out and make a difference in the governance and leadership of global health services, this to ensure better fairness and equity for all.
