Program Overview

Program Description:

The focus of the seminar is indigenous health. Ecuador has a vibrant population of indigenous peoples, and there are many exciting initiatives to combine their traditional health practices with Western biomedical practices. These are particularly important given the continuing inequities in health and education standards, which continue to place indigenous and rural peoples in the bottom percentiles. The program will compare urban Western medicine with rural and indigenous practices, to understand the challenges medical practitioners and local communities face.
