Mega-Chad is an international network that has as its aims the encouragement and support of multidisciplinary research on the societies and environments past and present of the Lake Chad basin, and the dissemination of research results. Following a first multidisciplinary meeting held in Paris in 1984, the network has grown progressively to its present total of about 350 members in some twenty countries. The network name Mega-Chad evokes the maximal extension of Lake Chad several millennia ago and refers to a vast area extending over much of Niger, Chad, northern Nigeria and northern Cameroon and the Central African Republic within which are many shared cultural traditions, influences and patterns of exchange.

The present volume contains contributions to the XIVth Mega-Chad colloquium which took place in Bayreuth from the 15th to the 17th of April 2010. The topics of the papers presented covered a wide spectrum connected to health issues, ranging from matters of health management, dietetics, and traditional medicine to country-specific problems and developments, as well as HIV/AIDS dis­courses in various communities.
