Reflections: Dr Paul Mason

February 28th, 2021


Anthropologist Dr Paul Mason has a particular interest in the social context of infectious diseases. In Vietnam and Papua New Guinea he studied the care and treatment of people living with tuberculosis. His book, written to educate Vietnamese children and their families about the treatment and management of this disease, has had worldwide success.  

Susan Porter talks with Paul about his fascinating career conducting field-work studies in remote communities, and the role of the anthropologist in the prevention and treatment of tuberculosis. You can hear this conversation on Reflections at 4pm Sunday 28 February, repeated 3pm Friday 5 March.
