Abstract

AGBIJI, Emem  and  LANDMAN, Christina. Health and health care in a Nigerian historical context. Studia Hist. Ecc. [online]. 2014, vol.40, n.1, pp.233-249. ISSN 2412-4265.

This article undertakes an historical exploration of the three healing systems in Ibibio from a social and theological anthropological perspective on health and health care and draws implications for pastoral caregiving in the hospital. It advances as its main argument the idea that while people may adapt and develop certain forms of health and healthcare as influenced by globalisation and changes in their sociocultural, political and historical context, they will fight to maintain what they perceive as valuable in their culture and uniqueness regarding health and health care.
