Faculty Lecture Series: "With or Without Bono: International Health Politics & Policies, Past & Present" presented by Anne-Emanuelle Birn


WEDNESDAY, MARCH 22, 2006 at 5 pm in AA112

The University of Toronto at Scarborough, through the Faculty Lecture Series, is proud to present,"With or Without Bono: International Health Politics and  Policies, Past & Present". The fourth lecture of the series will be presented by Anne-Emanuelle Birn, Associate Professor of Social Science,  Canada Research Chair in International Health.


Thanks to the advocacy of Bono and other celebrities, international health problems –including HIV/AIDS, infant mortality, and malaria—have garnered growing public attention and an infusion of resources.

What could possibly be wrong with such well-intentioned efforts?  This lecture will explore the politics and ideology underlying international health policies over the past century and propose that the technical and political assumptions of the pro-Bono approach may never fundamentally address international health ills.


The Faculty Lecture Series features outstanding researchers on our campus and provides you with an opportunity to engage with new ideas and research projects presented by our faculty members in an accessible manner.

Please join us for this engaging and thought-provoking lecture. Everyone is welcome!
