This informal workshop will bring together students and staff from the Intercalated degrees in the Anthropology and Sociology of Medicine, and Global Health Policy. Over lunch we will discuss how we apporach the idea of 'social determinants of health' from the perspectives of public health and anthropology. How do we conceptualise the idea of 'social'? How do these disciplinary approaches complement one another and differ?
