Anthropologies of Global Maternal and Reproductive Health

New (free) book on maternal and reproductive health policy across six continents

Lauren Wallace is the lead editor of a new open access book 'Anthropologies of Global Maternal and Reproductive Health: From Policy Spaces to Sites of Practice'

Mar 30, 2022

 

Lauren J. Wallace, Adjunct Faculty, is a Senior Researcher at the Dodowa Health Research Centre, in Greater Accra, Ghana, under the Research and Development Division of Ghana Health Service. She is a medical anthropologist whose research critically examines the making and implementation of maternal and reproductive policies at national and sub-national levels. Her PhD (2017, McMaster University), funded by a Vanier Scholarship from the Canadian Institutes of Health Research, was an ethnographic study of family size and family planning in northern Ghana. She has since ‘studied up’ to examine the dynamics of national priority setting for maternal and reproductive health in Ghana and Uganda ethnographically.

Her new book, 'Anthropologies of Global Maternal and Reproductive Health: From Policy Spaces to Sites of Practice' can be found here
