  Title Commentary. An interdisciplinary clinic in rural Tanzania – Observations on chiropractic care in a developing nation
Journal J Can Chiropr Assoc. 2016 Jun;60(2):Online access only p 131–136
Peer Review Yes
Publication Type Article

It appears that a great many chiropractors and chiropractic institutions are involved in health care initiatives in developing countries. Developing nations present extraordinary opportunities to do good, but also carry risks, for practitioners and organizations, which may not be obvious prior to actual local engagement. This paper describes the guiding principles under which one international collaboration has evolved in rural Tanzania, a so-called ‘low resource’ setting where the majority of families subsist in extreme poverty. Several challenges to effective care are also identified.

Il semble qu’un nombre important de chiropraticiens et d’institutions chiropratiques participent à des initiatives de soins médicaux dans des pays en développement. Ces pays offrent beaucoup d’occasions pour des actions positives, mais comportent aussi pour les praticiens et les organisations des risques qui ne sont pas toujours évidents avant l’engagement sur le terrain. Cet article décrit les principes directeurs sur lesquels a évolué une initiative collaborative internationale en Tanzanie rurale, un environnement décrit comme faible en ressources, où la majorité des familles subsiste dans une extrême pauvreté. L’article cerne en outre plusieurs défis à relever pour offrir des soins efficaces.
