TITLE. The British Scientifics delegates at the First Three International Sanitary Conferences (ISC) and their relation with the Spanish delegate Pedro Felipe Monlau: The beginning of the construction of a transnational  scientific interchange network.

Research objectives and methodology

With the aim of assessing, in their context, the relationships between the British medical delegates at the first three ISCs and the Spanish medical delegate, Pedro Felipe Monlau we review the biographies of these British delegates (J. Sutherland, E. Goodeve and E.D. Dickson), the theoretical models on contagiousness and sanitary policy, the theories of the first British hygienists, sanitary organization and the issue of cholera in the mother country. The first ISCs were held to control and try to prevent epidemics of cholera and other transmissible diseases. France and England argued that quarantine measures no longer worked, proposing an increase in sanitation measures. The other governments convened advocated for the need to reinforce isolation. The ISCs closed without the ratification of agreements, but they did succeed in raising governments’ awareness of hygiene and sanitation. What is more they enabled extra-official contact between the leading hygienists and allowed the establishment of transnational scientific-medical networks above and beyond political agreements.
