Medical Anthropology

    Medical anthropology is a branch of anthropology, fixate on the relationship between health, illness, and culture. Acceptance and practices about health vary across different cultures and are influenced by social, religious, political, historical, and economic factors. Medical anthropologists are now designing multi-sited studies, for which they conduct ethnographic fieldwork in different field sites, use anthropological theories and methods to generate rare observation into how different cultural groups around the world experience, depict and respond to questions of health, illness, and wellness.

Medical anthropology succeeds more and more important after World War II when anthropologists began to empower the process of applying ethnographic methods and theories to investigate of health around the world. This was a time of widespread international development and humanitarian efforts aimed at bringing modern technologies and resources to countries in the global South. Anthropologists tested particularly useful for health-based initiatives, using their exclusive skills of cultural analysis to help develop programs tailored to local practices and belief systems. Specific campaigns focused on sanitation, infectious disease control, and nutrition

Medical anthropologists effort to solve a variety of complications. Illustration, some researchers focus on health equity and health disparities, trying to explain why certain communities have better or worse health outcomes than others, Medical anthropologists can be split into two general groups academic and applied. specializing in research, writing, and/or teaching. Uncontrite, applied medical anthropologists often work outside of university settings.
