Papers are sought for a panel on ‘Poverty and Health’ at the 73rd Anglo-American Conference of Historians, London, 7-9 July 2004. The Anglo-American is an annual conference organised by the Institute of Historical Research, University of London which considers the historical dimensions of a broad theme. This year’s subject is ‘Wealth and Poverty’, and we wish to convene a panel (3 or 4 papers) which examines this issue from the perspective of medical history. We would like to focus the panel on the theme of ‘Poverty and Health’ in the 19th and 20th centuries, and would be interested to receive proposals which address the implications of poverty for access to medical institutions, or for vulnerability towards particular diseases or for the treatment of citizens within health levitra professiona systems.
