Medicine and morality in rural Haiti are shaped both by different local religious traditions and by biomedical and folk medical practices. People who become ill may seek treatment from Western doctors but also from herbalists and religious healers. This study examines the logic behind these choices, and the moral issues where suffering is associated with guilt, but where different, sometimes conflicting, ethical systems coexist.
