User Configuration and Perspective

The aim of this paper is to delineate the different user representations of a new EPI vaccine. Among the range of users, the mother of the child in a distinctive local world emerges as the target user. The East Delhi Introductory Trial constitutes the ethnographic site for an understanding of user constructions among various public health officials. Corresponding to these user representations are the lived experiences of actual users negotiating with health problems in their everyday lives in specific local settings. The concluding section of the paper will compare and contrast providers' representations of the user with the users' self-representations as appropriators of child health services in both the community and biomedical spaces.
