David Turkon, associate professor of anthropology
David Turkon was recently interviewed by the Chronicle of Higher Education about his research on the impact of AIDS in the southern African country of Lesotho. Turkon criticizes the effectiveness of current AIDS relief spending, saying “There are no standards for monitoring and evaluation. So if you're even monitoring what you're doing, you're probably not using good, sound methods. People switch methods in the middle of a three-year intervention rollout, so the data they collected at the end isn't even comparable to the data they collected at the beginning.” He proposes that this is where anthropologists can provide assistance, since they have the training to go into the situation and help to solve the problem locally.
