  1. Cross cultural communication of tetanus vaccinations in Bolivia.

    Article - En anglais

    Although neonatal tetanus (NNT) is common in developing countries, many people are unaware of its causes and prevention.

    A study analyzed cultural beliefs and practices to understand how people in three cultural areas in Bolivia (Aymara, Quechua and Tupi-Guarani) think about NNT and tetanus toxoid (TT) immunizations.

    In all three cultural areas NNT is perceived within a magical and biological framework that involves alternative healing systems and healers.

    Tetanus immunization programs could be more successful if tetanus were a clearly marked target for the Aymara.

    Quechua and Tupi-Guarani people, and vaccinators were sensitive to their cultural perceptions.

    Health workers need to communicate cross-culturally the relationship of TT vaccinations to how members of these ethnic groups perceive NNT.
