Health, Politics and Culture in Africa
The Health, Politics and Culture in Africa project was initiated during the autumn of 2015. The project addresses a number of sub-themes that include health governance, the double burden of disease, media representations of health and Africa, antimicrobial resistance (AMR), and reproductive health.
The project creates a new platform and network at Uppsala University for teaching, supervision and research at the intersection of the medical sciences and the humanities. Furthermore, it promotes meaningful collaborations with universities, research institutes and networks in Africa and elsewhere.
Health, Politics and Culture in Africa is a strategic investment by the Vice Chancellor’s Office of Uppsala University that links the Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences with the Faculty of Medicine and Pharmacology.
