Self-Care Interventions for Health and Well-Being

Posted on

On March 3, IIGH welcomed Dr. Manjulaa Narasimhan, who leads the World Health Organization’s work on self-care for the Department of Sexual and Reproductive Health and Research, for a session on what self-care interventions mean for health systems, how to ensure that traditionally marginalized populations can benefit from them, and why attention to inequalities and human rights must be central to their implementation. Chaired by IIGH Director of Research Laura Ferguson, the event included commentary by ​​discussants Dr. Peter Redfield, Professor of Anthropology (USC Dornsife College of Letters, Arts and Sciences), and Dr. Yaniv Bar-Cohen, Professor of Clinical Pediatrics (USC Keck School of Medicine), each offering health and rights questions and considerations to ensure self-care interventions can be most useful to those populations most in need.
