Description

The focus of my PhD project is on the prevalence of falsified medicines in the multicultural society of Sweden and the direct harm they pose to children as one of the risk groups. Taking the basis of Swedish society, my research will focus on children's health knowledge about medicines and medicine procurement. The aim is to find out the extent to which children's social and cultural experiences of access and usage of medicines may affect their attitude towards how medicines are to be handled and procured.
