Malaria : ethnomedical perceptions and practice in an adangbe farming community and implications for control.
Malaria is a parasitic disease about which there is much bio-medical knowledge on causation, prevention, treatment and control.
Attempts at eradication, as well as control in the past has been mainly a technical and bio-medical endeavour.
With the policy shift from world wide eradication of malaria to control as part of primary health care, there is increasing interest in studying all possible determinants of the problem at local as well as regional levels as part of the search for an effective intervention.
