Heelath Outcomes for China & India

timer Asked: Oct 28th, 2015

Question description

Application: The “Haves” and “Have Nots”: Why Are There Disparities?

Earlier in the course, the different  population health outcomes of two culturally and economically similar neighbors  (the U.S. and Canada) were considered. This week, the focus shifts to the  eastern hemisphere and an examination of health inequalities between and within  nations with large, diverse populations.

Both India and China had similar health  outcomes at the end of WWII. Unlike India, China’s health improved tremendously  over the next 30 years. When it did not have a focus on economic growth, China’s  health achievements surpassed India. Since the economic reforms 30 years ago,  health progress in China has not been growing as much. Today, India is booming  and is home to some of the richest people in the world, but it is also home to  more food insecurities than anywhere else in the world.

To prepare for this  Assignment, review your Learning Resources this week. Consider how certain  large populations within a single political entity can still display disparate  health outcomes. Think about how areas such as Kerala can have remarkably  different health outcomes than the countries they are in. What makes those  areas different from the rest of the country?

The Assignment (3–4 pages):

  • Describe two health outcomes  for which India and China have had different experiences in the last half  century.
  • Explain the reasons for the disparities noted.
  • Describe the experience for those outcomes in Kerala and suggest  reasons for why they are similar or different from the rest of India.
