OVERVIEW

How to proceed from the care to "take care"? The health anthropology seeks to make known the link between the concepts of health, environment and care, conjugating to the medico-biological requirements with numerous cultural stimuli that act before and during the illness. The acquisition of an "anthropological approach" allows you to put into due consideration the non-biological determinants of the disease. Wide publicity should be given to the study of individual variability .
