The workshop is organized by Dr. Lorraine Frisina Doetter and Julian Götsch of the CRC project A04 "Global Developments in Health Care Systems". The aim of the workshop is to bring together leading experts working on the historical and contemporary developments in healthcare systems in Kenya and Nigeria. In line with the research program of the CRC, we are especially interested in discussing the potential role of colonial ties, and nation-building that contributed to the introduction and any subsequent reforms of healthcare systems in the two countries. As this also necessitates an understanding of what systems actually looked like at the time of their establishment in the post-colonial states and during colonial rule, another aim of the workshop is to address the challenges of identifying and/or generating reliable data on that period.
