If you are interested in Cambodia, in its transformations, in the impact of international organizations’ presence, in the interactions between a vast network of socio-culturally diverse actors and between heterogeneous ways of acting and thinking? Therefore this book is for you. Based on an ethnographic study on the role, the meaning, the impacts, and the issues and contradictions inherent to the participation of « expert patients » in the fight against AIDS, this book shades lights onto the local interpretations of international norms and the challenges facing health democracy in Cambodia.
Eve Bureau-Point is a social anthropologist, post-doctoral fellow at the French Institute of Research for Development (UMR 216) who specializes in medical anthropology. Since 2005, she has been working on the patient’s expertise in health democracy. Her latest works deal with patient’s participation in research, the construction of lay knowledge, and self-medication in France and Cambodia.
