Abstract

Bonnet Doris, Duchesne Véronique (eds.), 2016, Procréation médicale et mondialisation. Expériences africaine [Assisted reproduction and globalization: African experiences], Paris, L’Harmattan, 250 p. This collective work, edited by two anthropologists at the Paris Population and Development Centre, focuses on sterility and medical treatment of it in a region about which we know little in this connection: sub-Saharan Africa. With the exception of path-breaking studies by Marcia Inhorn on the Middle East and Elizabeth Roberts on the Ecuadorian Andes, social science research on these topics has primarily focused on Europe and North America. This is therefore a key study that provides a great deal of empirical information on sterility, treatments available for it in Africa, treatments used there, and collective and individual strategies for overcoming sterility, including biomedical techniques. Authors from three European countries and three disciplines (anthropology, education, and IT and communication sciences) analyse local ways of appropriating new reproduction techniques. Drawing on field surveys of sterile heterosexual couples and physicians in urban contexts and using communication analysis tools, the book’s fourteen chapters cover nine African countries: South Africa, Burkina Faso, Cameroon, Ivory Coast, Gabon, Ghana, Mozambique, Uganda and Senegal. Each country situation is positioned within the current international
