LES COMPORTEMENTS DE RECOURS AUX SOINS EN MILIEU RURAL AU SENEGAL. Le cas des enfants fébriles à Niakhar

Abstract : Malaria is a serious infectious disease which claims more than a million lives each year and which strikes 80% of African children. This situation is partly due to sanitary and social factors. This thesis deals focuses on the different ways to heal children with a fever, in Senegal. The results show that children are mainly tended at home while very few people resort to sanitary structures, that people wait a long time before taking their children and that they do not follow the prescriptions so well. However, people tend to be pragmatic in their responses as they are faced with deficient biomedical care. The child's health is taken care of on a collective basis, in which each member of the family cell has a specific role to play. The way people resort to medical care varies according to numerous elements, among which illness characteristics, the morphology of the family cell and contextual parameters.
