  2. Examine various aspects of disease ecology relating socio-geographical contrasts to a dichotomy between infectious and non-infectious diseases.
  3. Investigate certain large-scale demographic phenomena in India – among others the experience of bubonic plague, influenza, cholera and famine.
  4. Discuss how social and psychological factors influence the treatment process.
  5. Explain why so many people suffer behavioural changes in later life; how this affects those around them and the challenges of providing health services for ageing populations.
  6. Provide historical perspective on contemporary difficulties and invite debate about the future development of health services.
  7. Offer international comparisons, particularly between the UK and US health care systems.
  8. Explore how the NHS confronts perennial stresses and problems, in particular the allocation of scarce resources.
