Event Image  Joint Tele-Workshop: BIOMEDICAL OBJECTS IN AFRICA: PRODUCTION, TESTING, DISTRIBUTION
7:30 AM

Bloomberg School of Public Health

JOINT TELE-WORKSHOP: Critical Global Health Seminar, JHU Department of the History of Medicine, SOM, JHU Department of History, Africa Seminar, KAS, JHU Transdisciplinary Health and Development Studies Programme, Stellenbosch University, South Africa. Global health interventions in the 21st century have become increasingly reliant on the use of biomedical objects—vaccines, artemisinin combination therapies, antiretroviral drugs, insecticide impregnated bednets, vitamin A capsules, and ready-to-use therapeutic foods like “plumpy-nut”—to improve the health of peoples living in resource-poor countries across the globe, and particularly in sub-Saharan Africa. At first glance, the use of these technologies has resulted from a linear process of development and production, testing in the field, followed by their adoption by global health institutions and distribution through networks involving manufacturers, donor organizations, and NGOs. Yet a closer examination of each stage of this pipeline reveals a more complicated narrative. This narrative raises multiple questions which will be explored in this workshop. The panels include researchers from the U.S., England, and South Africa who have studied global health from the perspectives of history, anthropology, sociology, medicine, public health, and sciences and technology studies. Bloomberg School of Public Health, Room W5030. Discussion of pre-circulated papers. Pre-registration required, by email only.
