Summary
Offering a trenchant analysis of the effect that culture has in determining our perceptions - and expectations - of health care, this volume challenges traditional, Westernized, medical models. The author surveys various aspects of the health education domain, discusses the elements that inform an educational diagnosis of health behaviour and considers the cultural appropriateness of health behaviour in general
