The Colonial Politics of Public Health: Combating the Spread of Tuberculosis Between France and the Maghreb, 1830-Present

This monograph will study the spread of tuberculosis from France to North Africa and back, and efforts to control it, from 1830 to the present. It aims to broaden the discussion of empire from the ideological to the biological, but also to understand the limits and possibilities of preventive measures. How much emphasis, for example, was placed on vaccination on either side of the Mediterranean? It will pay particular attention to the interaction of metropolitan and colonial French public health organizations and the Pasteur Institute with international agencies like the World Health Organization and the Rockefeller Foundation. To what degree did authorities invest in dispensaries and sanatoria, or, after World War II, medication? To what effect?
