Spectacular advancements in medical sciences notwithstanding, the bulk of the world populations, particularly those who occupy the rural or fringe regions, have only scarce access to the benefits of such developments. This speaks of a divide hitherto unexplored or only improperly explored. Besides, in case of any serious ailments of their near and dear ones, what do such people do? Do they leave them uncared altogether or submit totally to the will of God? Could they have any alternative approach to tackle such problems? The book incorporates profiles of health cultures from India, as observed by a section of anthropologists, who are found committed to develop an area of academic specialization: the Medical Anthropology.
