AIDS and STDs in Africa: Bridging the Gap between Traditional Healing and Modern Medicine


"Since sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) facilitate the transmission of AIDS and since most STD cases are brought to traditional healers, Green argues that biomedical practitioners must work together with healers to help contain the epidemic. Drawing upon research in southern, East, and West Africa, he examines the role of traditional healers in providing health care and collaborative AIDS/STD and family planning programs in AIDS prevention."
