New paperback! And a chat with activists in the Uncounted

Some good news — beginning in October 2020, The Uncounted: Politics of data in global health will be available in paperback for US$35.99 (or 23.99 if you’re paying in GBP)!

To order from your local bookshop, try Indiebound – or if you’re not sure who that would be, go to Bookshop to order it online while supporting independent booksellers in general. The book is also available from Amazon, of course — but please support independent bookstores if you can. Wherever you get your copy, I’d be grateful for an honest review on Goodreads or Amazon – in our data-driven world, the more reviews it gets, the more visible it will be.

I had the chance to reunite with some of the Caribbean activists I wrote about in the book, who did their own community-led key population size estimates in 6 countries that had never had them before – as the book describes, they mobilized to draft the questionnaire, develop the research methods, interview hidden key populations, and analyze the data. Thanks to the amazing online HIV2020 conference organized by communities living with and affected by HIV, we were all able to reunite on Zoom and geek out about participatory action research. Watch the recording here. Look on the right-hand side of the screen for interpretation in Spanish, French, Portugese and Russian!

We’ll have more events soon – including an exciting one organized by AIDS activists, so please stay tuned.
