Explores the social aspects of health and illness, the relationship of illness to the organization of society, and the organization of medical care—the distribution of correlates of mortality and morbidity, attitudes toward illness, the sick role, the organization of therapeutic settings, the economics, and the politics. Health delivery systems are evaluated cross-culturally and proposals for change in the American health system are critiqued. Same as SOC 319.
