Dr. Amrita Daftary featured in Podcast discussing stigma and TB


Published on May 6, 2021

Dr. Amrita Daftary, Faculty Member here at the Dahdaleh Institute for Global Health Research, was recently featured on the "Everybody Hates Me: Let's Talk About Stigma" podcast hosted by Dr. Carmen Logie.

Dr. Daftary discusses TB and how this preventable and curable illness still affects more than 10 million persons each year and 1-2 million die from it. She talks about the fear and stigma that act as both drivers and consequences of TB. TB can affect anybody, but it most impacts communities facing other social inequities such as poverty, overcrowded living conditions, and persons who are undernourished. Her work applies a social justice lens to raise the voice of people living with TB, aligning with the calls rooted in the disability rights slogan 'nothing about us, without us!'

The episode hosted by Dr. Carmen Logie and the podcast is supported by funding from the Canada Foundation for Innovation and Canada Research Chairs program. Original music and podcast produced by Jupiter Productions, who have various production services available to support your podcast needs.
