The politics of post-colonial state building through the lens of disease and public health policy. In the tropical region of Yucatan diseases were plentiful and epidemics touched upon every aspect of life. To combat this, governmental medicinal plans and legislation were put into place, but public health campaigns became negative symbols of control over the individual and were fought by various Mayan groups.
