Rockefeller philanthropy and modern biomedicine : international initiatives from World War I to the Cold War( )

16 editions published between 2002 and 2003 in English and held by 1,982 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The eight case studies in this edited volume show in detail how the Rockefeller Foundation's gifts affected medical research, education, and public health in Europe, the Soviet Union, and China between World War I and the Cold War. The cases reveal the varied success of the country-level programs in meeting the Foundation's goals. Despite the Foundation's primary emphasis on strengthening established medical programs, major medical advances were achieved in several places without a notable history of medical research. In other circumstances, however, the Rockefeller Foundation was confronted with local cultural and political imperatives that reshaped or weakened its objectives. The book offers important lessons regarding the situations in which international philanthropy is likely to be most effective."--BOOK JACKET
The history of blood transfusion in Sub-Saharan Africa by William H Schneider( )

8 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 1,502 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This first extensive study of the practice of blood transfusion in Africa traces the history of one of the most important therapies in modern medicine from the period of colonial rule to independence and the AIDS epidemic. The introduction of transfusion held great promise for improving health, but like most new medical practices, transfusion needed to be adapted to the needs of sub-Saharan Africa, for which there was no analogous treatment in traditional African medicine. This otherwise beneficent medical procedure also created a "royal road" for microorganisms, and thus played a central part in the emergence of human immune viruses in epidemic form. As with more developed health care systems, blood transfusion practices in sub-Saharan Africa were incapable of detecting the emergence of HIV. As a result, given the wide use of transfusion, it became an important pathway for the initial spread of AIDS. Yet African health officials were not without means to understand and respond to the new danger, thanks to forty years of experience and a framework of appreciating long-standing health risks. The response to this risk, detailed in this book, yields important insight into the history of epidemics and HIV/AIDS. Drawing on research from colonial-era governments, European Red Cross societies, independent African governments, and directly from health officers themselves, this book is the only historical study of the practice of blood transfusion in Africa."--Provided by the publisher
