Where There Is No Doctor

Hesperian Health Guides have published an updated printing of their classic manual Where There Is No Doctor, featuring updated medicines, information on tuberculosis and HIV, anti-retroviral therapy and preventing HIV in babies.

Where There Is No Doctor is perhaps the most widely used health care manual for health workers, clinicians and others involved in primary care delivery and health promotion programmes around the world. With millions of copies in print in more than 75 languages, the manual provides practical, easily understood information on how to diagnose, treat and and prevent common injuries and illnesses. Special attention is focused on nutrition, infection and disease prevention, and diagnostic techniques as primary ways to prevent and treat health problems.

All details available at the Hesperian web site.
