This article examines how the Dutch achieved a monopoly of the global quinine market before 1920, in the context of European colonial powers developing their own cinchona plantation enterprises to secure imperial supplies. The essay first describes Anglo-Dutch competition for cinchona market domination in the second half of the 19th century. Second, it argues that the commercial strategies employed by the Dutch were crucial in their outmaneuvering of Britain, the former market leader, and that the Dutch utilized the opportunities presented by the First World War to complete the monopolization of the quinine market. This article provides deeper global context for aspects of history such as the Japanese colonial cinchona enterprise in Taiwan and posits that the Dutch used the monopolization of the quinine supply as a political tool to influence the governance of malaria control.

Keywords:Java, Cinchona, Dutch East Indies, malaria
