Medical Anthropology and Practice of Medicine in Health Issues

Abstract: It is known through anthropological literature that African countries are distinguished by a category of medicine that many specialists call ethnomedicine or traditional African medicine. Faced with biomedicine, ethnomedicine has often been relegated to the background in the resolution of health-related problems. However, ethnomedicine resurfaces in African countries, particularly in Cameroon, when there is no biomedical solution to a

Disrupting medical anthropology: Views from Kenya and Cameroon on how to build a more inclusive discipline

Medical anthropologists often strive to disrupt typical public health and medical discourses, in part by questioning the broader applicability of individualized psychological concepts and biomedical diagnoses outside of the small, privileged Western circles from which these constructs originate (Henrich et al. 2010).

Reshaping the bulimic self

This article is part of the series:

The current clinical and social explanations of bulimia in the United Kingdom are based upon two premises: 1) that bulimia is a derivative of anorexia, and 2) that it is a hierarchically “lower” disorder, meaning that it is worse to have than anorexia.
