Health, Politics and Culture in Africa is a Forum for Africa Studies project that is made possible by a strategic investment from the Vice Chancellor’s Office of Uppsala University. The project involves students, researchers and faculty in the strengthening of interdisciplinary research and teaching environments at Uppsala University that cross-cut the medical sciences, social sciences and humanities.
