For our most recent episode of the History Slam, I traveled to Harvard’s Francois-Xavier Bagnoud’s Center for Health and Human Rights to talk to its director, Alicia Yamin, about her new book Power, Suffering, and the Struggle for Dignity: Human Rights Frameworks for Health and Why They Matter. In the episode we talk about her personal experiences, defining human rights, and what constitutes health policies. We also talk about colonial mentalities and the challenges of combating the commodification of life. The post also includes my full review of the book. You can find it here.
