Some reactions to illness of urban black and indian families in Durban. A summary of an exploratory study.
During an exploratory study into the health practices and beliefs of samples of Black and Indian households in Durban, housewives reported that in their households extensive use was made of Western medical facilities and practitioners. Religious and traditional belief systems and practices relating to illness were probably under-reported, but clearly form important elements in the behaviour of both groups.
