Center for Global Studies: Events

Syndemics refers to complex epidemics involving two types of adverse interaction – the clustering and interactions of two or more diseases or health conditions (the biological–biological interface)and social environmental factors (the biological–social interface). The theory has been widely applied in the fields of medicine, public health and anthropology. CGS and WGGP are proud to welcome four scholars who have been active in this new field of research.
