Imposing Morality in Global Health: Thoughtful Advocacy Amidst Cultural Diversity

February 21, 2020

Harvard Medical Center, Boston MA

Global health in cross-cultural settings can involve numerous complex situations. Many have accused global health practitioners, despite their best intentions, of cultural imperialism due to their imposition of certain (usually Western) norms and worldviews as they attempt to improve health in cultural settings different than their own. History demonstrates many examples of foreigners detrimentally affecting the various groups they sought to help. But is all advocacy for cultural change wrong? Speakers Clydette Powell and Jacqueline Bhabha address the issue with Gloria Hammond moderating.
