The Wider Image: Tanzania's Zanzibar begins to register traditional healers
Traditional healer Bi Mwanahija Mzee 56, massages pregnant patient Maryam Juma, 29, in Zanzibar City, Tanzania, February 2, 2019. This is Maryam's fifth pregnancy after three miscarriages and one stillborn. Both she and the healer believe the reason is because the children in the uterus were possessed by supernatural sprits like djinns. Maryam comes to Bi Mwanahija Mzee for reassurance, herbs and prayers that this baby will survive. REUTERS/Nicky Woo SEARCH "TANZANIA HEALTH" FOR THIS STORY. SEARCH "WIDER IMAGE" FOR ALL STORIES.
