Authors: Cecilia Obeng (Dept. of Applied Health Science, Indiana University, Bloomington, IN 47405) 
Book Description:
This book is about children’s health care in traditional societies in Ghana. The book pays a close and systematic attention to how rural Ghanaians take care of their children’s health needs. In particular, the study principally examines my primary research conducted in Ghana about how children, especially newborn babies, are cared for in general and during times of sickness. The book also pays special attention to disease causation in children and beliefs that influence and/or impact the curing of children afflicted with diseases. The study done for this book may be considered a prelude in the study of children’s health care research. It therefore aims at setting the scene for an interdisciplinary research on children’s health from both an anthropological as well as a social scientific perspective.
