    This teaching pack focuses on the intersection of gender, conflict, and education through the experience of Malala Yousafzai, who in 2012 was shot by members of the Taliban due to her educational activism. A short case study introduces students to Malala’s story and to the national and global reactions to her shooting, setting that incident within the context of Pakistan and her advocacy work. Through the reading and discussion of this case, as well as through four suggested classroom activities, students are introduced to a broad concept of health which not only considers “health conditions” (conditions of the body) but also includes conditions in the world and social environment that affect health (social determinants of health). Students explore what social, political, and environmental conditions affect educational access in Pakistan. This teaching pack emphasizes the connection between education and long-term health outcomes, as well as the responses that are necessary to impact social determinants of health.
