L’hôpital en Asie du Sud
Politiques de santé, pratiques de soin

Hospitals are undergoing a crisis. Hospitals are undergoing a reconstruction. Hospitals need to be open to the rest of the healthcare system. They must put the patient back at the heart of the medical model. These observations, heard from Paris to New Delhi, are symptomatic of an institution that has been undergoing profound changes for several decades.

While inviting the decentralization of these issues and bringing together researchers from different disciplines (social anthropology, geography, psychology, sociology), this volume presents an updated panorama of the changes in the hospital in South Asia, drawing on the plurality of practices, norms and care facilities, so specific to this region.

From maternities and childcare to psychiatry, from the public to the private sector, from India to Pakistan, these contributions reflect the emergence of new aspirations among patients and caregivers, a redefinition of the relationship between caregivers and the development of innovative standards and practices in hospitals.

Given the multiplicity of the fields presented, are these not also an opportunity to examine more broadly the transformations of the role of the State, the persistence of social, religious and inter-caste tensions, and finally the circulation of models of care between global and local ?
