Abstract:
In analysing medical mission in Ghana this thesis argues for a new historical framework for twentieth-century international health which is not determined by the Cold War, the postwar growth of the international community or by imperial powers working in their former colonies. Instead, this thesis shows how the emergence and growth of national and international health in the Gold Coast (Ghana from 1957) between 1919 and 1983 was formed substantially through the local and global interests, funding and denominational cultures of medical mission.
