Abstract

In Who Cares? Care Extraction and the Struggles of Indian Health Workers, editors Maya John and Christa Wichterich bring together a collection of essays exploring the extraction and undervaluation of labour in healthcare, specifically within the Indian context. This book is an urgent examination of how precarity and hierarchisation are baked into healthcare labour markets, and the detrimental consequences this has for nurses and other care workers, writes Tine Hanrieder.
