Platform on Human Health Working Group on Governance & Communication Perspectives on Global Health invites to a research workshop: 

MEDICINE, MOBILITY, AND POWER IN GLOBAL AFRICA WITH PROFESSOR HANSJÖRG DILGER

Recent political, social, and economic changes in Africa have provoked radical shifts in the landscape of health and healthcare. Medicine, Mobility, and Power in Global Africa captures the multiple dynamics of a globalized world and its impact on medicine, health, and the delivery of healthcare in Africa – and beyond. Essays by an international group of contributors take on intractable problems such as HIV/AIDS, malaria, and insufficient access to healthcare, drugs, resources, hospitals, and technologies. The movements of people and resources described here expose the growing challenges of poverty and public health, but they also show how new opportunities have been created for transforming healthcare and promoting care and healing.

  • TIME: 28 February 2013, 9.00-16.30

  • PLACE: Roskilde University, Building 23.2
