From the editorial:
I am personally interested in navigating healthcare futures, particularly in the context of climate change - the role of degrowth in healthcare to reduce the resource consumption of medical therapy; pandemics and diseases that will arise (and are arising) from anthropogenic activity due to things like zoonotic spillover or deteriorating air quality; immediate disaster relief in the face of natural disasters and in providing healthcare for climate migrants; the rejection of pharmaceutical industry profits and a shift toward open source drug resources; and what healthcare could look like beyond the patient-practitioner dichotomy to name a few issues. Beyond discussing problems, I hope that The Guts Of It becomes a publication for the discussion of radical solutions to varied problems facing global healthcare now, imminently, and into the future, and am looking forward to sharing these in the coming months.
