Book Launch: "The Uncounted: Politics of Data in Global Health"
Join us on Thursday 11 June 2020 to explore the politics of data in global health with the new book of Meg Davis "The Uncounted".
In the global race to reach the end of AIDS, why is the world slipping off track? The answer has to do with stigma, money, and data. Global funding for the AIDS response is declining. Tough choices must be made: some people will win and some will lose. Global aid agencies and governments use health data to make these choices. While aid agencies prioritise a shrinking list of countries, many governments deny that sex workers, men who have sex with men, drug users, and transgender people exist. Since no data is gathered about their needs, life-saving services are not funded, and the lack of data reinforces the denial.
