The following interactive discussion questions are based on a fictional animated storyline developed from Chapter 2 of the third edition of An Introduction to Global Health by Michael Seear and Obidimma Ezezika. The storyline and questions are intended to provide students with the opportunity to understand trends that shaped the modern aid industry, the origins of foreign aid institutions and organizations, and the history that led to current large-scale foreign aid initiatives.

There are questions for each of the five modules of the storyline as well as general reflection questions at the end. To answer the questions associated with the storyline, students will be required to explore external resources linked with the questions and integrate the acquired information with that available in the storyline. In some instances, students may also need to conduct independent research to learn more about a concept or topic to answer the questions adequately. Before watching the video, students are encouraged to read Chapter 2 of An Introduction to Global Health, 3rd edition.
