This eye-opening program provides a global perspective on health and human development. We speak to experts from The Nossal Institute for Global Health, ActionAid and Oxfam, and examine the important work they are doing in the world over. We define concepts of human development' and developed' and developing' countries, discuss mortality rates, and analyse the health status of different countries. We also describe the relationship between health, human development and sustainability, and evaluate WHO and UN strategies. We conclude by explaining the impact of health determinants on a nation's health, and analysing equity and social justice.
