When People Come First

Adriana Petryna is the co-editor of a new book titled When People Come First: Critical Studies in Global Health. The book critically assesses the expanding field of global health, bringing together an international, interdisciplinary group of scholars to address the medical, social, political, and economic dimensions of the global health enterprise. It demonstrates the crucial role of ethnography, arguing for a more comprehensive, people-centered approach, setting a new research agenda in global health and social theory and challenging us to rethink the relationships between care, rights, health, and economic futures.
