Divins thérapeutes - La santé au Brésil revue et corrigée par les orixas

Abstract : This study on the therapeutics practices of afro-brazilians cults shows the coherence of using them in a society, the brazilian, where oficial system is not suffisently adapted to answer the needs of its population. After a presentation of the sanitory system, the perception of the afro-brazilian cults and the negro in Brazil, this study shows that these practice - which were during a long time repressed - are now valorised and become, more than a complement, an alternative or a paliative in front of an inadequated official medicine.
