Synopsis

Masithethisane ngeMpilo ngesiXhosa Let’s chat about health / Kom ons praat oor gesondheid offers a comprehensive trilingual (isiXhosa, English, Afrikaans) response. The authors aimed to transcend language and cultural barriers, to contribute to equity by respecting the right of amaXhosa citizens of Mzantsi Afrika to be health treated in their mother tongue for greater comfort, and to facilitate treatment and healing among amaXhosa patients who may now articulate their health concern, at least in part, in their language of choice.
The targeted reader will find a wealth of medical and health-specific language which was purposefully mined and created to suit the specific needs of medical and health professionals working in largely monolingual isiXhosa spaces.
