    Questioning self-medication

    A socially and geographically situated bricolage

    Treating oneself is a controversial practice: scorned in the name of the health risks it runs, self-treatment may also be praised in the name of the independence it expresses. The messages of public health authorities are at the heart of the controversy, emphasizing risk one moment and their potential for patient responsibility the next. Such contradictory injunctions also affect the practices of care providers. The conference has chosen to allow comparisons and confrontations between these various disciplinary approaches as well as distinct research field sites (North/South, North/North, South/South). These practices and their determinants have to be more finely mapped and analyzed to put these analyses – by definition always partial, and theoretically, historically, and geographically situated – in perspective.
