In terms of healthcare, in both the People’s Republic of China and the United States there have been dramatic changes within the past 60 years. The PRC has evolved to be a superpower and a major player in the international healthcare development arena whereas the USA has struggled to maintain its image as a major builder of soft diplomacy. When it comes to delivering healthcare, Africa is a continent with many developing countries with individualized needs that calls for individualized healthcare plans, and both the PRC and USA have struggled with this relationship. The PRC on one hand has had social conflict with the average African, which has been detrimental to relations, the USA on the other hand, has reduced international development funds and has been in a healthcare crisis of its own. Due to these changes, Africa has essentially become the last battleground for soft power with healthcare being the measuring tool. Transitioning Healthcare Support in Developing Countries From the US to China: Emerging Research and Opportunities explores the history of healthcare in Africa from the 1960s to the COVID-19 (Coronavirus) Pandemic in 2020. This book examines the relationship between the People’s Republic of China (PRC) and the United States of America (USA) in providing healthcare services to Africa and documents the struggles and areas of both success and failure in doing so. The chapters cover issues such as racism in PRC residing in Africa and the USA’s struggle with coronavirus. This book is ideal for government officials, medical personnel, policymakers, international agencies, practitioners, stakeholders, researchers, academicians, and students interested in the relations and healthcare delivery between both the USA and PRC to Africa.
