GOVT 30.14 Health Politics and Policy

Is health care a right?  Why does the United States spend more than comparable countries on health care but experience worse outcomes, and also lack universal coverage? How might the health care system be reformed to increase access and quality, and reduce costs?  We consider these fundamental questions and explore a range of key issues, including health equity, mental health care, overdiagnosis and overtreatment, drug regulation, state policies, comparative health care systems, and the COVID-19 pandemic.

Degree Requirement Attributes


The Timetable of Class Meetings contains the most up-to-date information about a course. It includes not only the meeting time and instructor, but also its official distributive and/or world culture designation. This information supersedes any information you may see elsewhere, to include what may appear in this ORC/Catalog or on a department/program website. Note that course attributes may change term to term therefore those in effect are those (only) during the term in which you enroll in the course.
