Summary: Medicine, Faith and Politics in Agogo examines the development of health care delivery at a former mission hospital in Ghana. It reveals the configurations of interests, values, and ideologies that shaped the development and implementation of health care practices, strategies, and concepts. By providing an in-depth analysis, the book contributes a particular perspective on the history of health care delivery in rural Africa and beyond. It addresses topics that are still heavily under-researched. These include the 'decolonisation' of health care as well as the development and implementation of medical concepts for 'developing countries' such as primary health care. Dissertation.

Multinational Mines and Communities of Place Book by Albert Kazaura Tibaijuka

Multinational Mines and Communities of Place Book
  • Author : Albert Kazaura Tibaijuka
  • Publisher : LIT Verlag Münster
  • Release Date : 2021-01-27
  • Category: ,
  • Pages : 368
  • ISBN Code: 3643803664

Summary: Like many other developing countries hosting multinational mines in rural communities, Tanzania has not only witnessed a mushrooming investment in its extractive industry, but has also experienced continuous contestation and disagreements between key stakeholders in the industry. This study demonstrates that analysis of the antagonistic relationship between multinational mines and communities, offers a productive way through which deeper understanding of corporate - community relations, particularly stakeholder dialogue practices can be developed. The study views this `battleground' as not necessarily a problem. Instead, it employs an analytical approach to the actions, views and perspectives of community of place, to offer a locally grounded construct of stakeholder dialogue.

Summary: The developmental years of Ghana - the first state to become independent from colonialism in sub-Saharan Africa in 1957 - were marked by the United Kingdom's effort to showcase its former colony as a model of successful democracy export for the rest of Black Africa. They called it the "Ghana Experiment". Major Western powers like the United States and West Germany participated in the attempt to keep Ghana aligned with the West. As Ghana's President Kwame Nkrumah embarked on a bold anti-imperialistic, pan-African policy, Britain and the United States concerted a common strategy which accelerated Nkrumah's eventual downfall in 1966 and brought Ghana back into the Western sphere of influence.

Self-Efficacy Shapes Modernization Book by Barbara Drosten

Self-Efficacy Shapes Modernization Book

  • ISBN Code: 364391041X

Summary: Self-efficacy (SE) is the critical link between environment, culture, institutions, modernization, and development. It enables adaptive learning from environmental stimuli, and fosters agency, cooperation, goal setting, openness, opportunity recognition, and longer-term planning. SE can be regarded as fertilizer for any policy measure. Research amongst smallholder farmers in South Ghana shows that historical return on investment culturally bequeathed investment SE, which largely influences today's farming investment and household income. SE is well malleable and perceptive to intentional promotion.

Africa’s Natural Resources and Underdevelopment Book by Kwamina Panford

Africa’s Natural Resources and Underdevelopment Book
  • Author : Kwamina Panford
  • Publisher : Springer
  • Release Date : 2017-02-02
  • Category: Business & Economics
  • Pages : 249
  • ISBN Code: 1137540729

Summary: This book explores how African countries can convert their natural resources, particularly oil and gas, into sustainable development assets. Using Ghana, one of the continent’s newest oil-producing countries, as a lens, it examines the "resource curse" faced by other producers - such as Nigeria, Angola, and Equatorial Guinea - and demonstrates how mismanagement in those countries can provide valuable lessons for new oil producers in Africa and elsewhere. Relying on a broad range of fieldwork and policymaking experience, Panford suggests practical measures for resource-rich developing countries to transform natural resources into valuable assets that can help create jobs, boost human resources, and improve living and working conditions in Ghana in particular. He suggests fiscal, legal, and environmental antidotes to resource mismanagement, which he identifies as the major obstacle to socioeconomic development in countries that have historically relied on natural resources.

Healing Bodies, Saving Souls Book by David Hardiman

Summary: Missionary medicine flourished during the period of high European imperialism, from the late-1800s to the 1960s. Although the figure of mission doctor – exemplified by David Livingstone and Albert Schweitzer – exercised a powerful influence on the Western imagination during the nineteenth and early-twentieth centuries, few historians have examined the history of this important aspect of the missionary movement. This collection of articles on Asia and Africa uses the extensive archives that exist on medical missions to both enrich and challenge existing histories of the clinic in colonial territories – whether of the dispensary, the hospital, the maternity home or leprosy asylum. Some of the major themes addressed within include the attitude of different Christian denominations towards medical mission work, their differing theories and practices, how the missionaries were drawn into contentious local politics, and their attitude towards supernatural cures. Leprosy, often a feature of such work, is explored, as well as the ways in which local people perceived disease, healing and the missionaries themselves. Also discussed is the important contribution of women towards mission medical work.Healing Bodies, Saving Souls will be of interest not only to students and historians but also the wider reader as it aims to define the place of missionary within the overall history of medicine.

Orature and Yoruba Riddles Book by A. Akinyeme,Akintunde Akinyemi

Orature and Yoruba Riddles Book
  • Author : A. Akinyeme,Akintunde Akinyemi
  • Publisher : Springer
  • Release Date : 2016-02-09
  • Category: History
  • Pages : 261
  • ISBN Code: 1137502630

Summary: Orature and Yorùbá Riddles takes readers into the hitherto unexplored undercurrents of riddles in Africa. Because of its oral and all too often ephemeral nature, riddles have escaped close scrutiny from scholars. The strength of the Yorùbá as the focus of this study is impressive indeed: a major ethnic group in Africa, with established connections with the black diaspora in North America and the Caribean; a rich oral and written culture; a large and diverse population; and an integrated rural-urban society. The book is divided into six chapters for readers' convenience. When read in sequence, the book provides a comprehensive, holistic sense of Yorùbá creativity where riddles are concerned. At the same time, the book is conceived in a way that each chapter could be read individually. Therefore, those readers seeking understanding of a specific type of riddle may target a single chapter appearing most relevant to her/his curiosity.
