    Respect for Numbers: Lively Forms and Accountable Engaging in Multiple Registers of STS2018In: Science & Technology Studies, E-ISSN 2243-4690, Vol. 31, no 4, p. 109-126, article id 56747Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper explores an episode of numbers appearing on a screen and being read/spoken, looked at and received as numbers, by people who work together to achieve a particular goal. The events happened in Singapore, in 2012-2013, as part of periodic reporting on diabetic retinopathy screening in the context of efforts to innovate such screening. I tell of two parties at odds over how to engage numbers accountably. This question of ‘engagement’, of what can and should be done with numbers to secure their participation in organizational affairs, is worked out in how numerical forms are performed and sustained as working numbers. Using three STS analytics to analyse the episode – Helen Verran’s(2001) work on number as a relation of unity/plurality, John Law’s (1994) work on modes of ordering, and Steve Woolgar and Daniel Neyland’s (2013) work on mundaneity and accountability – I argue that numbers are brought to life in very different ways, each mobilizing a certain recognition of what numbers are and what it takes to respect this. In the conclusion, I comment on the article’s use and juxtaposition of these STS analytics, using the metaphor of a kaleidoscope.

    Making HPV Vaccines Efficient: Cost-Effectiveness Analysis and the Economic Assemblage of Healthcare in Colombia2018In: Science & Technology Studies, E-ISSN 2243-4690, Vol. 31, no 2Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Cost-effectiveness analysis is a strategy of calculation whose main objective is to compare for making decisions about the best, the most efficient solution (costs vs benefits) to a particular problem. Cost-effectiveness analysis not only provides a framework to compare healthcare interventions which in practice seem incommensurable; it also performs a set of assumptions regarding the nature of healthcare and individuals behaviour. This article analyses the role of cost-effectiveness analysis as a device to produce value in the introduction of human papillomavirus vaccines to Colombia. In different institutional pathways and decision-making scenarios cost-effectiveness has been the key issue that justified the inclusions and exclusions that such technology entails. Cost-effectiveness justified the definition of girls as the population target and the exclusion of boys from the risks and benefits of this technology. Cost-effectiveness analysis has been a key instrument in the sexualising and desexualising of cervical cancer and human papillomavirus vaccines through the rationalisation of economic benefits.
