Did you Know? During the colonial period, before biomedical health services were made “widely available,” they targeted government officials, missionaries, settlers and their carriers (Baker 1975; King and King 1992; Vaughan 1991). The colonial response to epidemics, which threatened the “economic and political viability of the early colonial state” (Vaughan 1991:37), was to “protect the Europeans by spending more on their health, at the expense of Africans” (Baker 1975: 301, in Lwanda 2002:76).
