How does health fit into a country's diplomatic strategies? While traditionally relegated to the realm of humanitarian outreach, states are increasingly willing to use support for healthcare as an important element in their diplomatic arsenal. This represents a significant change in how governments conceptualise health. Health is moving from being auxiliary or an afterthought to a more central location. Governments seek to use health diplomacy to extend both their hard and soft power. This shift towards emphasising health diplomacy is perhaps most striking when we evaluate the burgeoning relationship between the People's Republic of China and Africa. China's support for African healthcare systems has ebbed and flowed over the past 50 years, but it has come to assume a prominent place just as the government has sought to increase its political influence, economic footprint and access to natural resources throughout the continent. Providing healthcare resources not only helps China gain favourable trading terms and access to necessary resources, but also supports the government's attempts to portray itself as a good international citizen. It is this combination of hard and soft power--economic and ideological benefits--that marks a significant change in China's health diplomacy strategies.
