Scotland in the Global: HIV through Injecting Drugs and Beyond
The Beyond Global team of the Centre for Biomedicine, Self and Society (University of Edinburgh) is excited to host a mini-workshop series on Scotland’s importance in the global HIV through injecting drugs response.7 Apr 2021 to 14 Apr 2021 | Virtual
We are centrally engaged with the theoretical question of how health in developed nations constitute part of ‘global health’. Bearing recent COVID-19 resurgences, the workshop format has been modified to focus in-depth on two papers per session: one practitioner and one historian. We are hoping to follow with rich Q&A discussion sessions with the participants, which will be recorded and uploaded.
Workshop 1: 10-11:30 am, 7 April 2021
Presenters: Dr Ray Brettle was instrumental in establishing the need in Edinburgh, Scotland for HIV services for injecting drug users, while Dr Alex Mold (LSHTM) is public health historian and expert on anti-drug education campaigns in England and Scotland.
Workshop 2: 10-11:30 am, 14 April 2021
Presenters: Professor Jim Mills (University of Strathclyde) is a historian of global drug policy and responses, while Dr Hannah Elizabeth (LSHTM/University of Edinburgh) is a historian researching HIV and care in Edinburgh from the 1980s to 1990s.
