Global Pharmaceuticals
History of development
How can anthropology complement other organizations, NGOs, medical schools, business
*applied anthro
Epistemology of different disciplines/organizationssets boundaries
Hughes Anthropology as the uncomfortable science
Due to what it exposes
Theorists or a-ist
Stacey Leighre-creates current asymmetries of power
- led to resentment of biomedicine
- local cultures conceptualized as problems
- dynamic of SCWYFD – power differentials, how power structured the interactions
* power troublesome part of encounters
- power of biomedical imaginary, power of that imaginary – linked assumptions of what biomedicine can
do to address and solve problem, the very def’n and form of solution, implicitly creates uneven power
relations
- her concern, working within the system a-ist, can bring change enough change so that everything
remains the same
- reliance on ideologies of BM, individualize – how is this problem a symptom of social relations ex:
poverty, how does it shape and create problems
Critics of applied anthro – how is it implemented in relations of technology
What people were complementing, not enough – need to think out side the box of development
discourse
Reveal and show power imbalanceleads to suspicion and concern around..
ex: behaviour modifications, cooperation with sectors ( relations became adversal, damaged
community sociality as a result), ideo-political constructs employed ( populations in some context
considered a problem-population seen as a problem, takes away blame or individual human
behaviour/practices)
Neoliberal discourses on health care delivery on markets (PHC non-state sectors)
- primary care available through NGOs or states - leads to leaching of local helps
Criticism, system is so failed or damaged – what is the alternative? REVOLUTION?
- social systems
Hughes risk of politics of despair, not having anything else to propose

Global Pharmaceuticals
System altering praxistwo fronts
- my contribution improve access to BM resources and reveal whose interests are being served when
those resources are not being served – see the process of power that see these inequalities - politics
Schemas- cooperating
Global pharmaceuticals
- engaged critical anthropology of pharmaceutical entanglement of eco, social, ethical
- global flow of pharmaceutical drugs
PDsocially active - > global actors
Presence of Anti-retrovirla drugs change the meaning of social groups that are organized,
organized around disease status and raising consciousness, support for against stigma
- also ways to change meaning relationships to others. Not about raising counsciousness
Tracing links - difficult! To track Pharmceutical industries, changes anthro for seeing bounded
communities (operating at different scales)
Each phase of pharmaceutical actors, different actors with different ethical frameworks
Ethics* - complexion
Aids denialiism in South Africaled to poor access to ARVS
When bodies rememberBOOK!*
Flexible delivery depends on exclusions
How do you tell someone we have medicine to save your lives, but its not free
Level of kinship networks – hierarchies of concern
- family has HIV, network of family helping them by providing resourcesleads to burden on
family, do i support my cousin w/HIV or send my daughter to school
- broken up and reorganized (WHYTE AND WHYTE ARTICLE)
Petryna and Haley article - critical anthro work..
