Chinese Medicine in Cameroon
China’s arrival on the African economic scene is overturning the balance of forces in place since the independence of African countries. Africa is regarded by some as a “new hunting ground” or “promised land” for China, making it part of its global strategy. This article sets out to examine one of China’s so-called “soft power” strategies, represented by the widespread practice of Traditional Chinese Medicine (hereafter TCM) overseas. It focuses on Cameroon, which is a mainstay for Central Africa on account of its harbour and its regional economic dominance.
