Traditional Medicine and an Inclusive Model of Health Seeking Behaviour in Zimbabwe.
This paper examines research conducted in Zimbabwe over the past three decades on the patterns of use of traditional medicine in Zimbabwe. While much is known about patterns of choice between traditional vs. orthodox medicine, little is known about when and under what circumstances Zimbabweans use other medical therapies. A more inclusive model of health seeking behaviour that entails a more encompassing definition of traditional medicine and a broader spectrum of health care alternatives is advocated.
