Third-World Folk Beliefs and Practices: Haitian Medical Anthropology

Third-World Folk Beliefs and Practices: Haitian Medical Anthropology

This work was created principally for that group of human beings - the most admirable we have ever known - who devote a large, or small, portion of their lives to helping the Haitian people by practicing medicine in extremely isolated, difficult outposts of rural Haiti. Our principal aim is to acquaint those new to the rural Haitian scene with what many (but certainly not all) patients may believe, and to present a sampling of the cultural barriers to be confronted.
