[Public Lecture] Medical Populism in Asia - La Trobe University

On May 12, 2023, I delivered a virtual lecture organized by the Philippines-Australia Forum of La Trobe University in Melbourne on medical populism in Asia. In my presentation, I shared three case studies of medical populism in the Asia Pacific, namely (1) the controversy surrounding the Dengue vaccine (Dengvaxia) in the Philippines in 2017; (2) the war on drugs by Prime Minister Thaksin Shinawatra in Thailand in 2003, and; (3) the COVID-19 response in India under the leadership of Prime Minister Narendra Modi. 

The video of the event can be viewed here. Thank you to Dr Raul Sanchez-Urribari, Director of the Philippines-Australia Forum, and Rei Fortes, for organizing it!
