The landscape of health care is changing rapidly, both on an organizational and a technological level. This book gathers medical anthropologists to examine the ways that both patients and health care workers are being affected by new policies, market, and technologies. Contributors cover a wide range of topics, including vaccination, disability, migration, and self-medication, making clear that not only are changing circumstances leading to the emergence of new socialities, but they are also driving new ethics and moralities.
Bernhard Hadolt is chairman of the Medical Anthropology Working Group in the German Society for Ethnology and study program director at the Institute of Social and Cultural Anthropology at the University of Vienna. Anita Hardon is coauthor of The Social Lives of Medicine.
