Privilege and inclusivity in shaping Global Health agendas
Northern voices dominate Global Health discussions. How can it be acceptable that these groups continue to dominate in deciding what problems we think about in Global Health and how we approach them? The most excellent research study or Global Health program risks failure unless it is informed by and contextualized by the people close to where change is sought. The question of inclusivity calls for multiple approaches. Intersectionality—the study of how privilege and disadvantage are linked to overlapping social identities—holds promise in deepening our understanding of inclusivity.
