This course traces the history and politics of overseas interventions in medicine and public health from the pre-modern period to the present. In doing so, it reconstructs the historical origins of the modern global health movement, highlighting the movement's roots in practices of colonialism and empire-building, the rise of international commerce and industrial capitalism, the development of international philanthropy, and efforts to secure and protect national borders during epidemics and other public health and humanitarian crises. As a class, we will ask whether relationships forged through colonialism continue to structure international medical interventions and the interactions of foreign health professionals, local experts, and patients in the modern global south. We will also examine the ideologies, institutions, ethics, and practices of international health during much of the twentieth century, questioning to what extent the more recent global health movement represents a new and distinct approach. Finally, we will study how patients, communities, healers, and government officials in the global south have experienced, supported, and resisted international medical interventions in the past. By studying this history both from the top down and the bottom up, we will develop a clear understanding of how the past informs the present in the contemporary global health movement, shaping both its achievements and its limitations. We will also consider how a historical approach may help experts address complex political and ethical concerns within the global health movement.
By Marcos Cueto and Steven Palmer. New York: Cambridge University Press, There is no other such work available. It is authoritative in its knowledge of primary and secondary English, Portuguese, and Spanish sources, broad in its temporal and geographical scope, comprehensive in its overview of different interacting medical systems, and critical in its assessment of national, international, and global health initiatives. Starting with the premise that exchanges among indigenous, African, and European systems of healing in the colonial period laid the foundation for the medical pluralisms that have shaped postcolonial histories to the present, the first chapter demonstrates the ways Western and non-Western medicine were transformed from the early sixteenth to the nineteenth century. In the second chapter, the authors trace the central role of physicians as educators, politicians, researchers, sanitarians, and medical practitioners in the state-building efforts of the late nineteenth and early twentieth century.
