The aim of the workshop is to bring together leading experts working on Northern, Central, and South America to discuss historical and contemporary developments in health and long term care. In line with the research program of CRC 1342, we are especially interested in discussing the potential role of transnational linkages or interdependencies that contributed to the introduction and any subsequent reforms of health and/or long term care systems within the region. As this also necessitates an understanding of what systems actually looked like at the time of their establishment - however embryonic - another aim of the workshop is to address the challenges of identifying and/or generating reliable data, particularly for Central and South America, as well as for a period of observation that may date back to as early as the turn of the 20th Century.
Attendance by invitation only.
