Video Vignette: Healthcare and Traditional Medicine

For cocoa farmers who spend long hours laboring at their farms, dealing with injuries is a part of the job. In this video vignette, Bamba Gohou Aissata and Ouattara Mariam discuss how farmers in the Village of Kragui cope with the healthcare challenges posed by living in a small farming community without many healthcare options or easy access to major hospitals.

Since road conditions and limited vehicle access often make traveling to a hospital difficult, farmers in Kragui often look to traditional medicine to treat illness and mend injuries. You’ll hear Bamba and Ouattara discuss homeopathic remedies farmers there have developed, the obstacles they must overcome to ensure the health of their friends and family, and the unique challenges posed by child birth in their village.
