African Indigenous Medicine

£29.99

Product description

"This book is a result of ethnographic studies and surveys carried out in Kenya between 1983 and 1990. While cosmopolitan medicine is used widely in Kenya, the majority of lay people hold concepts of health and illness which are largely indigenous. Cosmopolitan health care providers have little understanding of these concepts. This hinders effective communication between health care providers and their clients." (Blurb on back cover, 1992.) Condition: the covers have some mild marking and shelf-wear. The edges of the book have some mild crinkling and tearing. The interior pages are generally crisp and clean with a good strong binding.
