Compared with experts who specialize in the research and practices of international relations, diplomacy, and health care, we are familiar with development research but not familiar with the topics, theories, methods and the cutting edge related to development aid. These disciplines therefore have become our research subjects and research into relevant literature is part of our research, which starts from the case study of development aid for health from China to Uganda (DAHCU) from the perspectives of sociology and anthropology.
