Care in the City: Psychiatry in an Era of Global Heath and Urbanization in Tanzania

Bryan's research investigates how global attention to mental health shapes the provision of care for those with severe mental disorders, and how historical and emerging urban inequalities in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania, shape access to and the delivery of psychiatric care. Throughout 11 months of research, he will observe participants at a psychiatric ward and interview psychiatrists, nurses, psychologists, social workers, and government officials to understand what shapes the conditions of mental health care in Tanzania.
