L’accès aux soins au Gabon : écart entre la stratégie politique et les pratiques de santé

Abstract : At the declarative level, the Gabonese State demonstrates its commitment to guarantee and protect the lives of people through a coherent health policy. However, the issue of equality in healthcare remains unresolved in Gabon. It raises questions from the population and health actors. The research conducted in this thesis has practical implications. It is a question of a context of deficiency of the offer of public health, aggravated by the existence of the non-professional practices, dominated by the quest for profit. Our study analyzes access to healthcare devices in order to better understand the reasons for their fragility. This dissertation mobilizes the methodological and conceptual tools of sociology to offer a fine analysis of the gap between the political strategy of health and health practices such as class medicine and the merchandising of healthcare in Gabon. This country of Central Africa is all the more interesting to study as it allows to relativize the approaches which are fixed only on the economic dimension of the problem. Indeed, Gabon is a relatively rich country. However, equality with regard to access to healthcare, although officially decreed, is far from being effective
