At the fringes of the unprecedented medication scale-up in the treatment of HIV, many African countries have experienced dramatic antiretroviral drug stock-outs.

The debate on herd immunity has strongly marked the political and scientific management of Sars-Cov2, as has been widely reported in the media. The language of immunity between gambling and speculation for a time, was tempered by oracles, when Imperial College models predicted the disaster in Britain. However, the wager on natural herd immunity did...
Article
Rationale, aims and objectives Patients undergoing haemodialysis receive on average 10–17 medications, which increase the risk of falls, adverse drug reactions and hospitalizations. Supervised discontinuation of potentially inappropriate medications may lower these risks. Although many calls have been made for deprescribing in the haemodialysis set...

The Chronic Viral Illness Service (CVIS) at the McGi...

Le « commun » et la nécessité de le penser ou le repenser résonnent aujourd’hui comme un important défi lancé à la sociologie. Tant idéologiquement que matériellement, la globalisation amène une reconfiguration des vies individuelles et collectives aux quatre coins du globe et nous confronte à une crise d’ampleur mondiale inédite, de nature à la fo...

La santé occupe aujourd’hui une place centrale dans les problématiques de développement international. Cette place paraît toutefois ambiguë dans les discours et politiques publiques de développement : présentée à la fois comme fin mais aussi comme moyen du développement. Réinterroger les notions de santé et de développement dans leur historicité no...
