Power Struggles: Addiction, War, and Other Forms of Conflict in Ukraine

The Health, Society, and Populations Program is thrilled to be the primary sponsor for Dr. Carroll's visit. Her talk, free and open to the public, is from 4:00-5:30 PM in the theater of the Marksbury building on Rose Street.

Abstract: In the last decade, significant global health resources have been allocated to contain the emergent and frequently co-occurring epidemics of HIV, TB, and drug use in Ukraine. A substantial portion of available treatment services for these diseases is supplied  by international donors. As a consequence, integrated TB, HIV, and addiction treatment programs for 'high-risk' individuals have become quasi-experimental staging areas for standardized, directly observed treatment protocols such as monitored methadone therapy and DOTS. Based on 18 months of fieldwork throughout Ukraine, this paper explores the trajectory of opiate users through internationally funded treatment efforts and the roles they are forced to play in the morally-charged social and political distinctions at the heart of the geopolitical conflict in this region.

Dr. Jennifer J. Carroll is a postdoctoral NIH research fellow at the Miriam Hospital in Providence, Rhode Island, and an affiliated researcher at the Warren Alpert Medical School of Brown University:http://jenniferjcarroll.net/
