Lecture: Healthcare Integration in Rural Philippines
This talk will present two case studies that are illustrative of the importance of how to "do" development interventions and, specifically, how to make "appropriate" technological transfers from one cultural setting to another, whilst helping to strengthen local social infrastructure.

The transfer of technology from the global north to low-income settings has remained an irrefutable and beneficent cornerstone of international development and foreign aid since the advent of the Truman Doctrine in 1947. Yet, the success in adoption and sustainability of these technological transfers has often been weak, at best, and dangerous, at worst. This research examines how the seemingly irrefutable beneficent development of birthing clinics with skilled birthing attendants throughout the rural Philippines in combination with the eradication of the training of traditional birth attendants (TBA) has resulted in a dangerous situation that threatens to reverse the successful reductions in maternal and infant mortality established since TBA trainings began from UNICEF and WHO in the 1950s. This case example is illustrative of the central importance in determining how to "do" development and, specifically, how to make "appropriate" technological transfers from one cultural setting to another.

This discussion will be relevant to students of healthcare, engineering, peace and justice scholars and others interested in emerging scholarship which is being developed at the intersection of these disciplines.
