Discussing the politics of disease

Posted at 10:59 AM on October 7, 2008 by Julia Schrenkler

Last week Midmorning guest Dr. Arnold Armmann joined us for an online chat about HIV | AIDS and prevention. One of his points inspired Gather regular Susan Budig to kick off a fresh discussion about the politics of disease. Budig proposes:

"[...] Dr. Ammann suggests that certain diseases such as [all] cancer doesn't carry the same social, communal, or political weight that AIDS/HIV carries. I offer the possibility that many, if not most cancers are much more social and political in nature than might initially be indicated."
