Care Extractivism

Nov 29, 2021

How does the global political economy affect health care workers and how do neoliberal austerity measures increasingly subjugate nurses, CHWS, and auxiliary health workers to the lowest rung of the occupational hierarchy? This panel will discuss why workers in these categories face greater occupational risks and more precarious working conditions and the fiscal policies that got us here.

Please join the People’s Health Movement and GHJP for their joint panel event “Care Extractivism” examining the global crisis of care and poor working conditions for nurses, CHWs, and auxiliary health care workers around the world. This event will take place via Zoom on Monday, November 29, 2021, 9:30 AM to 11AM ET. This event is a part of the “Reimagining the Political Economy of Care” series organized by GHJP and the LPE Project
