The following research questions were proposed in the TOR for the literature review:
In the Dinka population (specifically the tribes form the northern part of S Sudan):
What is considered a disease (or an illness or a sickness)?
What is the meaning of a disease?
What should be done against a disease (or to solve a disease, or the cure a disease)?
What are thy doing actually in case of disease (health seeking behaviour)
