Decolonising Health – an evidence-based overview

Newsletter, Thematic Support Unit


The concept of decolonization is not new. Over the past several years, the concept of decolonisation has been used to critically examine the field of global health and development. As global health evolved, it has attempted to shed the colonial roots of its predecessors – tropical medicine and international health. In particular, tropical medicine was established as an effort to protect colonial interests through tackling infectious diseases in the colonies. However, evidence indicates that some of the concepts that shaped tropical medicine continue in the scholarship, institutions, and leadership of global health and development.
