Doctors, healers and patients in Cambodia

Healing in the clamor of history. Doctors, healers and patients in Cambodia, by Anne Y. Guillou

In this talk, I will present a research on the Cambodian medicine(s) which has been published as a book (in French) in 2009 (‘’Cambodia: Healing in the clamor of history. Physicians and society’’).

The first questions arose when I came in Cambodia in 1990 as a PHd student in medical anthropology. I then began my field research by staying in Cambodian hospitals all around the country and in the refugees’s camps.

There I observed the many misunderstandings between the Cambodian medical staff and the humanitarian Western (and Japanese) one, regarding the standards of the medical work, both in its technical and ethical aspects.
