Nic Cheeseman: Politics and health in Africa
Nic Cheeseman walks us through a brief history of health in Kenya. He analyses the new system of devolution and how changes in the political landscape in Kenya have led to far-reaching changes to the way that healthcare is: funded, conceptualised, organised and delivered.
Dr Nic Cheeseman is the Director of the Centre for African Studies, Oxford. The main focus of Dr Cheeseman's research is democratisation. Over the past four year, Dr Cheeseman has advised various NGOs as well as the Foreign Office and the Department for International Development, the Pan African Parliament and the World Bank.
