Interrogating the social, ethical and political features of pseudo-global health’, Scholar will investigate how frontline healthcare workers assess medicine quality, what contextual factors influence their ability to distinguish genuine from fake or degraded products, their perceptions and challenges, including what informs their decisions and actions, especially in resource-constrained settings.
