Kadetz, P. (2013) 'Sino-African health diplomacy: How political economic ideology and approaches to foreign policy can affect health aid', in J. Li and L. Wang (eds.) China's Economic Dynamics: A Beijing Consensus in the making? Oxford: Routledge, pp. 148-168.
This chapter examines if, and if so, how the international healthcare transfers that comprise health diplomacy, from China to African states, are different from the normative health diplomacy of the West. This chapter will also explore how political economic ideology may affect health diplomacy, specifically in terms of the so-called Washington Consensus and Beijing Consensus. To better identify these differences, Sino-African health diplomacy will be contrasted with US-African health diplomacy.
