Global health anthropology research group meeting

In preparation for her PhD defence on April 13, Kristine Husøy Onarheim will present her research Priority to the newborn? Real-life priority setting and intra-household resource allocation on newborn health in Ethiopia.

Drawing upon theories from priority setting and ethical analysis combined with micro level contextual analysis of household decision making processes, the study discusses the tensions between local realities and global and national priority on newborn health.
