Medicine, Faith and Politics in Agogo examines the development of health care delivery at a former mission hospital in Ghana. It reveals 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.
