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.

Abstract
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’.
