Seminar title- 'Vital Mobilities: Medical Supply Chains in the Climate Emergency'
Abstract- Flooding in the UK led to the temporary closure of the largest blood manufacturing facility in Europe. Across the Atlantic, Hurricane Maria resulted in saline IV shortages on mainland US. Focusing on the vital mobilities of blood and saline IV solution, I look at how medical supply chains are impacted by a changing climate. How do medical goods move between sites of production and sites of care? How are communities enrolled in global, geographically dispersed medical supply chains? How do extreme weather events threaten such vital mobilities? What adaptations and transformations will create more resilient and equitable vital mobilities? Bringing together the spheres of climate, mobility, and health, I reflect on how the climate emergency impacts medical supply chains and reliant communities.
