Vortrag von Vendlin Tarmo Simon: The newly emerging global health pandemics and the Role of Anthropologists in Public Health

22.11.2022, 18.30 Uhr
Iwalewahaus und Zoom


The World has experienced and suffered from multiple pandemics in the past few years. For the first time in history, all public health emergency infrastructures and health systems got tested by several pandemics including COVID-19. The pandemics once again exposed what anthropologists have been battling with, discussing and debating over years, the “otherings”, “belongings”, “quarantines” in the name of partial or complete lockdowns became buzzwords across the globe, even among the very remote communities of the world. While the world was suffering from the global pandemics such as COVID-19, measle, cholera, Sudanese Virus Disease or Ebola Virus Disease, Anthrax, Anthropologists were hardly called into action during public health responses. When called, their roles were limited to how best the communities can be engaged to reduce the risks or how best communities can “respond” and accept the top down public health emergency programs that often unacknowledged the social-cultural richness of the local communities.
