[Correspondence] Faith-based health care

The Lancet should be commended for the recent Series on faith-based health care, which is timely and welcomed. The authors offer a balanced viewpoint, neither missionary nor reactionary secularist. However, it is important to understand that faith can be an important determinant of health and affects culture, law, and health policy. The authors are quite right in highlighting that there is a dearth of research on the topic, with more known about involvement by Christians than by other religions, such as Islam.
