Medical anthropology explores the perceptions of disease, health, and healing in different cultures around the world. Sociocultural, biological, and ecological perspectives are used to understand the origins of illness and disease and medical practices across cultures. Topics include diagnosis and therapies, the role of healers like witch doctors and shamans, stress and mental health, unequal access to medical care, and medical anthropology applied to global health problems.
