AFST580 Ideology & Practice of Health Ministry in Contemporary Africa (4 cr.)


The course is designed to help participants fulfill their vocation as healers and builders of healing Christian communities in contemporary Africa. This vocation is studied in the perspective of the definition of health by WHO as “a state of physical, mental, and social well-being” and of the Alma Ata Declaration on Primary Health Care for all in the year 2000. The course focuses on community based and preventive healthcare while taking into account the evolution of curative medicine since the recent appearance of a new incurable illness. This ministry has to take into account the patients’ view of health and illness due to invisible powers and the importance of prayer healing.
