SEMINAR – “Interaction between health Institutions in knowledge and medical practices in South Kordofan/Nuba Mountains“, BY MARIAM SHARIF

On Sunday 31st January, Mariam Sharif presented in CEDEJ her M.A. thesis “Interaction between health Institutions in knowledge and medical practices in South Kordofan/Nuba Mountains“

This research focuses on nurses as one of actors who adopt knowledge and medical practices through their interaction with other health practitioners and health institutions in plural medical system. This interaction has been traced through nurses’ process of learning, getting tools and working under the conditions of complex emergencies in South Kordofan.

This research was aiming:

– to deploy qualitative methods (participant observation, narrative interviews) in order to elucidate the interaction of nurses in different health care systems and institutionalized medical knowledge and practices,
– to analyse the challenges for building public health services in conflict and post-war areas, and
– to probe the question how health services can facilitate non-violent social interaction and non-violent contest over resources.  ◼
