International Health and Africa: Who is Leading Whom?

  • Susan Adong


International health matters have been a rather neglected area of research in international relations. The onset of AIDS/HIV, a communicable disease (not a tropical malaise) has shown sub-Saharan Africa to be an area marginalised by the World Health Organisation’s (WHO) rhetoric on ‘universal health for all by the year 2000’. The trend currently is upwards in many other diseases such as tuberculosis, heart disease, cancer and other non-tropical diseases.1 That it has lost its way and lead is not in dispute.
