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.
H-MedAnthro addresses the needs and concerns of medical anthropology graduate students, practicing anthropologists, scholars, and scholar activists who address issues of local, national and international health importance. This network and its accompanying web sites form the hub of an active research community and a storehouse for information supporting the endeavors of medical anthropologists and their colleagues in allied social science fields.
