Beyond ‘New Drugs for the Market’: the Antimicrobial Resistance Global Governance Challenge and the Need for Social Innovation
Christian Haddad was invited to hold a contribution at the workshop "Global Health & Diplomacy: Configurations of Knowledge, Power and Policy" at the University of Vienna:
On 10-11 February 2020, InsSciDE’s work package on Health hosted a seminar with the title "Global Health & Diplomacy: Configurations of Knowledge, Power and Policy" at the University of Vienna. The event consisted of academic presentations and interdisciplinary panels, mingling factions from across the public health sphere. InsSciDE case study authors from the Health work package showcased their research in dialogue with other researchers, covering cases such as antimicrobial resistance, vaccination, and diagnostic technologies for newly emerging diseases. Specific attention was devoted to the role of social sciences and humanities in informing infectious disease control, in dialogue with EU project SONAR GLOBAL. The end of the workshop was marked by commentary from and discussions with affiliates of the Global Health Centre, the Austrian Ministry of Labour, Social Affairs, Health, and Consumer Protection, as well as InsSciDE’s coordinator and President of the Historical Committee of Inserm (From Science to Health) Pascal Griset.
