Initiative funds studio grant to explore global health partnerships
The Population Health Initiative, in partnership with the UW’s Simpson Center for the Humanities, has awarded a Collaboration Studio Grant to a research team examining how global health partnerships have been developed, enacted and changed over time.
The project, “The Past, Present, and Future of U.S. Global Health Partnerships in Africa,” will draw from the fields of medical anthropology, African studies, and public health to track partnerships from the late colonial period to present to explore ongoing complexities. Through this work, the project will assess why and how lessons from historical partnerships in African contexts have not always been integrated into contemporary global health programs or future project designs.
The three researchers leading this project are Drs. Johanna Crane of UW Bothell’s School of Interdisciplinary Arts and Sciences, Nora Kenworthy of UW Bothell’s School of Nursing and Health Studies, and Lynn Thomas of UW’s Department of History.
