[VIDEO] Madhu Pai Lecture on Global Health Decolonization

It is now fashionable to talk about decolonization in global health, but the landscape of global health continues to be dominated by those with power and privilege. Many who espouse decolonialization make little effort  to transform the power and dominance from the global north that pervades global health activities.  Madhu Pai has written and spoken extensively about the challenges of genuine decolonization, and spoke as the Stephen Stewart Gloyd Endowed Lecturer on May 16 at the UW about how we can walk our talk on decolonization.  He discussed how, if global health is be reimagined or decolonized, people and institutions who typically hold power and privilege must shift from saviorism to allyship.
