Summary
Your Pocket Is What Cures You examines qualitative shifts in health and healing spurred by sub-Saharan African structural adjustment programs in the 1980s and health reforms in the 1990s, and analyzes the dilemmas they create for health professionals and patients. Grounded in ethnography, it also explores how cultural frameworks, particularly those stemming from Islam and Wolof ethnomedicine, are central to understanding how people manage vulnerability to ill health
