A Return To Traditional Health Care Practices: A Ghanaian Study
Nah Dove, 2010
Policy on implementing Western medical practices throughout Africa has led a sustained attack on the relevance of traditional medical practices. The findings of the study on child upbringing practices in some Ghanaian communities emphasize the importance of increasing traditional practices and ethics. The majority of rural people in the study had little or no access to Western health care, nor did they have the finances to use it. Findings showed that a high percentage of children could not have survived without traditional medicines.
