Critical Commentary

The second vignette speaks of a wounded man who spent around 7 hours lying on the sidewalk a few meters from the entrance to the hospital, without medical attention, while a large number of doctors passed around him to buy food from street vendors.


This vignette is based on the field notes I wrote me during field work in the Tumor Biobank of the Instituto Nacional de Cancerología, INcan.
