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.
The course has as main objectives:
