Abstract

© 2017 Elsevier Inc. All rights reserved. The intersection of the theories and practices of public health, anthropology, and bioethics is a recent trend. It reflects new public health challenges posed by the globalization of health research, the global spread of health technologies, epidemics of new and reemerging communicable diseases, and growing inequities in health both between countries and within countries. Anthropologists study local cultural models of illness and can anticipate when public health intervention protocols may clash with local norms. Public health practitioners will increasingly rely on and collaborate with anthropologists and ethicists to solve the public health challenges of the twenty-first century.
