Abstract:This issue of 'Medische antropologie' contains five articles and an introduction (by Anke Niehof) on resilience and health-related adversity which were originally presented at a CERES/EADI Summer School in Amsterdam, The Netherlands, on 12 June 2008. The contributions deal with theoretical and methodological aspects of 'resilience' on the basis of ethnographic field research in Ghana, South Africa, Tanzania and Zambia. Contributions: Identifying resilience pathways to sanitary health problems in an unplanned ward of Dodoma, Tanzania (Flora Kessy & Brigit Obrist); Resilience of HIV/AIDS-affected households in a village in Tanzania: does social capital help? (Carolyne Nombo & Anke Niehof); Resilience and AIDS: exploring resilience in the case of AIDS among female-headed households in northern Zambia (Esther S. Wiegers); The making of hardiness in women's experience of health impacts of wood collection and use in Cuntwini, rural South Africa (Magi Njirambo Matinga); Resilience and the whims of reciprocity in old age: an example from Ghana (Sjaak van der Geest).
