STREET-LEVEL HEALTH WORKERS IN SIX AFRICAN CITIES - SHIFTING GEOGRAPHIES OF WORK, RESPONSIBILITY AND ENTITLEMENT
WORKSHOP AT THE LONDON SCHOOL OF HYGIENE AND TROPICAL MEDICINE
DISCUSSANT: Doreen Massey (Open University)
APRIL 2ND 2012, 2PM-5:30PM
LSHTM MAIN BUILDING, KEPPEL STREET, MANSON THEATRE
This workshop brings together papers on routine practices and experiences of the lower levels of the urban public health infrastructure in six African cities. It brings the history and legacy of health work and of African agency in urban health into correspondence with present-day institutional, infrastructural and occupational spaces of health.
Participants are anthropologists and historians working on spatial and temporal aspects of health in West, Southern, and East Africa, with a discussion led by Prof. Doreen Massey, author of 'World City' (2007) and 'For space' (2005).
