Interested in learning more about *international health,* *neglected
diseases*, and ways to improve access to *lifesaving medicines *for
underserved populations in the developing world?  Then register for "*Access
and Delivery of Essential Medicines to Poor and Underserved Communities"
(PEDS 204, AXESS # 78645)*, a winter quarter lecture series-based course

Topics to be covered include neglected diseases, underserved and
impoverished markets, disease profiles of lower and middle income countries,

property in medicine and its effect on the delivery of healthcare.  Lectures
will be followed by Q&A and discussion.



This is a one-credit, pass/fail course open to all students.  Recommended
readings will be provided for each speaker, but there are no formal
assignments and the class can be fit into a busy schedule.  You can attend
the lectures if you are not registered, but *by registering you help

future years*.
