[afro-nets] Social Medicine New Issue Published


Social Medicine has just published its latest issue at

We are happy that information about the health care struggles in Colombia (our 
lead editorial) and Argentina (where Dr. Hirtz and her colleagues describe how 
workers took over their clinic rather than see it close) is available to an 
English-speaking audience. Claire Robinson and Martin Donohue describe the 
public health damage caused by GE Healthcare, an entity that also shows up in 
Indira Chakravarthi´s detailed look at corporate penetration into Indian health 
care.  Dr. Tim Anderson offers a fascinating look at the Cuban-inspired 
development of social medicine in Timor Leste and ponders how it will develop 
in the future.  Drs. Laura Moya and Jorge Alvar have completed a systemic 
review of the role of stigma in cutaneous neglected tropical diseases and ask 
if previous health campaigns have not failed because of a neglect of this 
important aspect of disfiguring diseases. Finally,  he noted historian Socrates 
Litsios provides a glimpse into the Rockefeller Foundation's conflicted 
approach to promoting public health in US medical schools.
