Abstract

O artigo procura, a partir de uma discussão sobre a complexidade histórica, social, cultural e racial de Moçambique, apontar para a necessidade de se pensar a epidemia de HIV/AIDS no país como um fenômeno que tem implicações específicas determinadas por tal quadro. As medicinas tradicionais e as concepções de deonça formuladas a partir de seus pressupostos, que estão intimamente relacionadas aos sistemas de parentesco, relações de gênero e cosmologias locais, e operam nas interpretações que os sujeitos fazem de seu contexto e experiências, devem ser levadas em consideração para se compreender as relações que os moçambicanos estabelecem com a doença, determinando concepções e experiências particulares de adoecimento pelo HIV/AIDS. This article, through an analysis of Mozambican historical, social cultural and racial complexity, intends to point out the necessity of understanding HIV/AIDS epidemics in that country as a phenomenon with specific implications, determined by those particular conditions. The traditional healing systems and their disease conceptions, which are intimately related to local kinship, gender relations and cosmologies, and affect the interpretations that subjects produce about their context and experiences, should be considered to understand the relations Mozambicans establish with the disease, determining their particular conceptions and experiences with HIV/AIDS.
