Dr. Madhukar Pai was a speaker at last week's Decolonizing Global Health 2020 Conference at Duke. His research is mainly focused on improving the diagnosis and treatment of tuberculosis, especially in high-burden countries like India and South Africa.
Other speakers included Dr. Seye Abimbola, editor of BMJ Global Health. “I'd rather not assume that where a person lives or is from is the key to their worldview," Abimbola said.
Amy Locklear Hertel, chief of staff to the chancellor at UNC Chapel Hill, added: “Equality doesn’t seem to be human nature. We have to keep working at it.”
