    Abstract "Global health" retains the historical baggage of colonialism. With rapid technological developments in science and medicine, most of which occurs in the Global North, low- and middle-income countries remain, largely, the passive recipients of knowledge generated in contexts removed from the realities of life in many parts of Africa, Asia, and South America. While attempts have been made to address capacity in the low- and middle-income countries (LMIC) context, these arise from an assumption that the current trajectory of knowledge generation is the right benchmark against which progress should be assessed.
