Costa Rica's healthcare system is unique because it's socialized and has achieved excellent health indicators. The course focuses on the history and development of the public health care system within the context of the Costa Rican socio political and economic situation. It also gives a strong emphasis on how the system works and points out not only the strongholds of the systems, but also its weak points.

During this course we will discuss different tropical diseases, some very common for countries not developed, and strange for people from North America.
Students will learn about the prevention and transmission of relevant tropical diseases.
