As a medical anthropologist, Anita Hardon uses innovative methods to combine the social sciences and medicine in her research on global health issues. She is interested in a broad range of subjects, from reproductive health in women, HIV/AIDS, and the social impact of pharmaceuticals on vulnerable youths to the relationship between health and global sustainable development and the role of chemical substances in the lives of young people.

In part through her own efforts, Hardon’s work has also influenced the policies of the World Health Organisation and various NGOs.
