|Collaboration with Traditional Healers in HIV/AIDS Prevention and Care in Sub-Saharan Africa - A literature review (UNAIDS, 2000, 64 p.)|
This review was written for UNAIDS by Rachel King, MPH.
The author would like to thank, first, all the traditional healers for their tireless work in the community, and their enthusiasm for collaborating with the biomedical sector; and second, the clients of healers who were the first to build the bridge between the two health sectors. Finally, this review would not have been possible without the valuable contributions of the following individuals who generously gave information about their projects: Firmina Mberesero, David Scheinman, Eric Gbodussu, Rene Burger, Donna Kabatesi, Edward Green, Debi Lebeau, Mercy Manci, Sandra Anderson, Noerine Kaleeba and Jaco Homsy.
Traditional healers develop training materials in Mukono, central Uganda.
