Global Health and the Politics of Knowledge

Joint Seminar Series of the WZB Junior Research Groups "Global Humanitarian Medicine" and "Governance for Global Health"

Global Health organizations constantly strive for the scientific legitimation of their work. Yet, what counts as evidence in Global Health, and who sets priorities? The seminar series explores the different views on health that are promoted by governments, professionals and activists and their implications for political priorities, as well as the experiences of the people affected.
