For her PhD research Hancart Petitet conducted anthropological fieldwork in South India in partnership with the French Institute of Pondicherry. She documented the social and political dimension of birth in poor rural and urban communities. Since 2008, her research, conducted in collaboration with the Pasteur Institute in Cambodia, addresses issues related to the social construction and social production of birth control in the context of HIV. Her current research project funded by the French National Agency for Research on Aids and Sidaction aims to analyze the Women Reproductive Health Care Issues in the ANRS 12095 Cipra Kh001 Camelia Clinical Trial. This research stands at the intersections of reproduction politics, global flows of medical technologies, and social form and outcomes of inequalities.
