Article
We investigate the notion of therapeutic mobilities through the case study of transnational health care practices and medicinal flows within the Hmong diaspora between Laos and the U.S. Drawing upon narratives of traditional healers, pickers, and plant sellers, as well as a collection of postal registers, we highlight how therapeutic mobilities fol...

This article revisits the conceptualisation of pharmaceutical regulation. While States and multilateral organisations play a central part in devising rules, regulation as a social practice extends beyond their role.

Conference Paper
Full-text available
Treating oneself is a controversial practice: scorned in the name of the health risks it runs, self-treatment may also be praised in the name of the independence it expresses. The messages of public health authorities are at the heart of the controversy, emphasizing risk one moment and their potential for patient responsibility the next. Such contr...

Project
Resulting from a series of case studies, this research programme will study the place of health in local development of touristic areas: it will measure the direct and indirect effects of tourism on the regions, populations and health systems. Will the implantation of touristic infrastructures generate improvements (better performing health systems?) or will it produce inequalities (two-tier health system)?
