Interactive workshop on Decolonizing Global Health
27/01/2022

By the WG Determinants of International Health 
Online, 27 January 2022 – 2-4 pm (Brussels time)

Triggered by two major events, the Covid-19 pandemic and the anti-racist Black Lives Matter protests, the last year or two have seen an amplification of calls for the decolonisation of global health.
But what do we mean when we speak of decolonising the world of global health? Why is it necessary to decolonise global health? Is it possible to decolonise global health with a series of incremental reforms or do we need a systemic overhaul? And how can Be-cause health contribute to the decolonisation of global health?
 
On January 27 (2:00 – 4:00 pm Brussels time), the working group Determinants of International Health invites Charles Ddungu and Clara Affun-Adegbulu of the Antwerp Institute of Tropical Medicine for an interactive virtual workshop to discuss these questions and introduce us to the field of decolonising global health.

This is a first step in a Be-cause health trajectory on the decolonization of global health. All Be-cause health members and friends and members of the different working groups are kindly invited to join and contribute to the discussion based on their domain of expertise.
