Abstract [sv]

Samtidigt som användningen av alkohol har minskat i den utvecklade delen av världenökar den i utvecklingsländerna. Alkoholanvändningen har både kulturell och social meningmen är samtidigt relaterad till flera hälsoskadliga- och sociala problem. Studiens syfte var attbeskriva hur personer med inflytelserika uppdrag i en massajby i Tanzania uppleveralkoholanvändningen samt dess följder för såväl invånarna som för byn. Vidare var syftet attbeskriva deras upplevelser av religion och traditions betydelse för alkoholanvändningen.Kvalitativa, semistrukturerade intervjuer genomfördes utifrån en intervjuguide med ettändamålsenligt urval av tio respondenter. Data analyserades med manifest innehållsanalys. Urdataanalysen framkom resultat två teman: faktorer som påverkar alkoholanvändningen; samtfaktorer som alkoholanvändningen påverkar. De största konsekvenserna avalkoholanvändning upplevdes vara kontrollförlust med oförmåga att ta hand om sig själv ochsin familj. Dessutom upplevdes alkoholanvändningen som en olägenhet för byn genombortfall av arbetskraft vilket respondenterna upplevde som påfrestande för hela bynsutveckling. För framtiden föreslås arbete som hjälp till alternativ inkomst föralkoholförsäljande kvinnor samt tydligt ställningstagande från byledningen.
