Mission Statement

The Medical Anthropology Section of the AAI is a meeting place for medical anthropology graduate students, practicing anthropologists, scholars, and health professionals who address issues of local, national and international health importance as part of their professional interests and/or academic research. It endeavours to support an active research community, while serving as a storehouse for information supporting the endeavours of medical anthropologists and their colleagues in allied social science fields.  It is also a source of expertise on these issues serving the broader community.
