Epidemiology and Anthropology

 Epidemiology and Anthropology

Collaboration between anthropology and epidemiology has a long and tumultuous history. Based on experimental examples, this paper represents a number of epistemological studies we have learned through our experiments. Although both mainstream epidemiology and medical anthropology focuses on the implications of addressing each streams main epistemological differences, while addressing the goal of adopting a broader social approach to health improvement. We believe it is important to push the boundaries of research collaborations from the more standard forms of “multidisciplinary,” to the adoption of theoretically imbued “interdisciplinary.” The more we challenge epistemological limitations and modify ways of knowing, the more we will be able to provide in-depth explanations for the emergence of disease-patterns and thus, to problem-solve.
