  • Project Title:
    Health Systems Impact of Skin-Lightening Trends: Case Study of Senegal
  • Project Description/Research Interests:
    This thesis is interested in studying the health system impact of skin-lightening trends amongst Senegalese women. It will first analyze the ways gender, race, the economy, and the country's postcolonial history come together to influence skin-lightening trends in the country. To that will follow an exploration of the health and health care implications of skin-lightening. The thesis will seek to establish how the identified implications influence the skin-lightening practices of Senegalese women and inform the country's healthcare decision makers in the country. Its final objective is to offer insights in support of an informed health system response to the utilization of skin-lightening products. Findings will also be helpful in the development of evidence-informed guidance to health practitioners, decision-makers, and women undertaking this practice.
