Yeah Politics - 07/08/2013 - Vaccination, Policy and Media

On August the 7th, before the election, we delved bravely into the world of politics and policy.

Our fourth speaker was Yeah Sessions co-founder and co-curator Ketan Joshi, talking about vaccination - a topic that is frequently blended with politics and media. In this talk, we explore the occasional but problematic involvement of politicians in health policy, and the recent case of an Australian media outlet deciding to campaign for new laws on the access of un-vaccinated children to childcare centres.
