Congratulations to Christine Winter and co-editor for publishing ‘Health and Medicine during and after the Pacific War,’ Journal of Health and History Special Issue

Congratulations to Sandra Widmer and Christine Winter for the publication of ‘Health and Medicine during and after the Pacific War,’ a Special Issue of the Journal of Health and History. This special issue takes a critical look at the history of health and medicine in the Pacific Islands by focusing on medical infrastructure and the professionalisation of Pasifika people after the Pacific War. This issue brings together historical and anthropological literatures on health, medicine, and infrastructure and the authors employ methods from both disciplines, combining archival sources from state, mission, and medical institutions with oral histories and participant observation.
