Structural Violence Paper Due Sunday of Week Seven

Review our assigned reading by Farmer on structural violence (Farmer, Paul. 2010. β€œOn Suffering and Structural Violence: Social and Economic Rights in the Global Era.” Partner to the Poor: A Paul Farmer Reader, Haun Saussy, ed. Los Angeles: University of California Press: pp. 328 – 350. Summarize the concept of structural violence by drawing explicitly from the reading, and by providing examples in your own words. Select one health issue or disease and one specific country. Locate five scholarly peer reviewed journal articles. Explore how structural violence influenced the emergence, spread, and treatment of the disease or health issue in the country you chose. For example, you might research HIV/AIDS in South Africa, domestic violence in India, or TB in Peru. Consider issues of stratification,access to health care, government policies, and/or cultural attitudes towards people with the affliction. Draw upon your articles to support your points. Refer explicitly to the concept of structural violence and Farmer’s insights as you apply the concept of structural violence to your chosen health issue. You should think carefully about your topic before beginning. Run some experimental searches via the library to see which topic will yield the most interesting information.
