We Will Be Citizens: from AIDS Activism to Mobilizing for Global Health Justice, Gregg Gonsalves, Asst. Prof. Yale School of Public Health

  • 12:30PM to 1:30PM
  • SLB Room 121

Abstract: In public health, we talk about how social and economic determinants drive health outcomes. But what if we go further and think about how the social and economic policies that make us sick are established in the first place? This takes us into politics, how we are governed and by whom, into the political determinants of health. The AIDS epidemic provides a lesson in the collision of late 20th century free-market fundamentalism, the politics of race, gender and sexuality with a new, deadly virus.
