Understanding the cultural context of illness is extremely important for diagnostic assessment and clinical management (Robert Hogan, 1997). This is because there is nobody that exists oblivious of culture. Therefore, in order to make the correct diagnostic assessment as well as clinical management culture is a big factor that should play.
The importance of identity, language and culture cannot be underscored in any community. Valuing and embracing cultural diversity is therefore in countering racism. Individuals should not be held back in their exploration of the uniqueness that comes with their cultural identity.
