Neighbourhood disadvantage and access to healthcare : The case of sickle cell disease in two Adivasi communities in central and southern India
The PhD looks at access to healthcare in Adivasi communities in India from a lens of neighborhood disadvantage. There is a physical and social environment in a neighborhood that can shape access to healthcare, especially in communities that are deprived of many privileges such as the Adivasi community in India. I will do this with the help of literature synthesis, stakeholder interviews, and case studies of people living with sickle cell disease in two Adivasi communities in central and southern India.
