The Benevolent Dragon? An analysis of China's health diplomacy to Africa (1964 – the present)
6 March 2013
Wednesday 13 March 2013, 5.30–6.30pm, Bentham SB01 Seminar Room 3.
Transnational history lecture and seminar with Dr Paul Kadetz, Global Health, Arizona School of Health Sciences.
The practice of health diplomacy aims to prioritise the health care aspects of humanitarian aid as a mechanism for political economic negotiations between donor and recipient nations. Existing research concerning health diplomacy has neglected to assess the context-appropriateness of the health care aid transferred, the manner in which health diplomacy is implemented, and the political and economic ideologies embedded in such transfers. Using these criteria, this presentation examines how health diplomacy may be understood with the specific case study of Sino-African health diplomacy over the past sixty years. China's health diplomacy is contrasted with examples of that of the US in order to assess whether the former constitutes a distinct alternative to the normative health diplomacy of the ‘global North’.
Paul Kadetz is an Associate of the China Centre for Health and Humanity at University College London and is on the faculty of the Global Health programme of the Arizona School of Health Sciences in the US. He completed his DPhil in Development Studies at the University of Oxford. He also completed a MSc in Medical Anthropology at Oxford and holds a MPH in International Health and Development; a MSN as an Adult Nurse Practitioner; and a MSOM in acupuncture and herbology. Paul served as an external expert researcher for the Traditional Medicine Unit of the Western Pacific Region Office of the World Health Organization and assisted in the development of the current strategy for Traditional Medicine for the Western Pacific Region. Paul has conducted research on health care and integrative medicine in China, Cuba, Guatemala, the Philippines and in Post-Katrina New Orleans. He is currently studying the long-term epidemiological effects of drone technology on children.
