Socio-political and Cultural Determinants of Diarrheal Disease in the Mekong Delta

From Discourse to Incidence

Reihe: ZEF Development Studies, Band 28, 2014, broschiert, 376 Seiten

ISBN: 978-3-643-90562-8

This study examines the cultural, social, environmental and political factors that shape the spread of diarrhoea. The case of Vietnam's Mekong Delta shows why the spread of disease is not merely an epidemiological problem, but an institutional one. Social inequalities, the dominance of central-state led discourse and the lack of participatory health education all contribute to a persistently high incidence of disease. This research calls for a re-politicization and contextualization of public health problems, in order to better understand why they occur and therefore be able to prevent them.

Panagiota Kotsila isa researcher at the Institute of Environmental Science and Technology (ICTA), Autonomous University of Barcelona (UAB), Spain.
