AAA panel on (reproductive) health in Eastern Europe?

 

Dear all,

I'm an anthropologist working on reproductive health in Romania and would love to present my work at the AAA conference in Washington at the end of this year. Is anybody putting together a panel on (medical) anthropology in Eastern Europe and still looking for abstracts? 

All the best,

The MSF Access Campaign is seeking to build support for a "Test Me Treat Me" initiative by circulating a petition that will be presented at upcoming international conferences to policy makers, pharmaceutical companies, funders, and government representatives. The petition demands universal access to Drug Resistant Tuberculosis (DR-TB) diagnosis and treatment, better treatment regimens, and the funding necessary to achieve these standards.
