dc.description.abstract Health and healing has been intertwined in culture since the dawn of mankind. Since its beginning, hundreds of different forms and varieties of medicine have been created by cultures around the world. This diversity is lent to by the fact that culture has great effect on the approach taken to healing. This connection makes it necessary to examine the culture of an ethic group in order to understand their form of medicine. This is what I did with African traditional medicine. First examining the African cultural mindset so as to shed light on how it affects traditional medicine. Then investigating the influence that interaction with other cultures has had on traditional medicine and finally examining the future of traditional medicine. en_US
