I chose to discuss community health because it is such an important topic anthropologically and because community health is something I hope to be apart of in the future. Something unique about community health is that each community has its own specific culture. It is extremely important to understand the area you are working in so you are able to give them the best care and fully understand what it is causing the distress or illness in the community. I hope to some day be apart of a community health team to be able to help communities positively and effectively. An important reason to take the anthropological view point is because there are certain disorders that differ by culture. For instance, in the beginning of the class we watched a video talking about the different diseases that have taken place in different areas of the world. In week two lecture one we were given a scenario about a community living by a river in North Africa where people had been urinating into the water causing snails to produce a parasite that harms humans. This parasite can cause bleeding, and severe organ diseases. This diseases shows as blood in the urine. In other areas of the world blood in the urine would not mean this same disorder, instead it could be seen as a urinary tract infection. Depending on what community you are treating makes a difference to how the issue is diagnosed and treated. This is why the anthropological perspective is so important in community health. It is important to know and understand a community before coming into help them. Some religions do not believe in giving blood or receiving blood. This would be something to take note of as an anthropologist so that a doctor would not offend a patient or community but instead understand their culture.
