O knihe

This book is perhaps the first anthropological attempt to investigate on the issues of indigenous medical system of malaria in Ethiopia. Indigenous medicine is the sum total of a person's or group's health related knowledge, beliefs, norms, values, rituals and symbols. The book essentially assesses and compares the society's health care options such as home remedies, traditional medicine and modern health care services. Furthermore, the book widely demonstrates that those of cultural construction of illness, traditional healing systems and the various socio-cultural factors were basic determinants to shape and moderate the society to perceive malaria causation, prevention, treatment and control. The book therefore, will be very useful to a wide reading audience throughout the globe in general, and in the sub-Saharan countries, in particular, the place where malaria incidence is becoming an extremely sever health problem and thereby professionals, health practitioners, readers will find it interesting and hopefully it will stimulate for further research on the social and behavioural asptcts of various diseases including malaria.
