The Dystopia of Health Governance and Moral Rule in Post-coup Thailand
April 19, 2016 - 13:15-15:00
Lecture by Daena Funahashi, Assistant Professor, Aarhus University
This article rethinks the presumed translatability of World Health Organization’s (WHO) health promotion models for use within particular national institutional contexts, and explores the unintended consequences of their global export. Specifically, it focuses on the adoption by the Thai military government (2006-2008) of the “Health in All Policies (HiAP)” initiative, the push by the WHO to see negative health outcomes as natural limits to sustainable expansion of political and economic interests.
