The historiography of medicine and health in modern Latin America has seen unprecedented growth in the past 30 years. From a limited field principally focused on the heroic tales of physicians who led disease-control programs and sanitation campaigns at the turn of the twentieth century, the scholarship evolved into an expansive body of literature that explores the various forms,
experiences, and meanings of health, as well as their intersection with the main threads of Latin America’s complex histories.
