Where There Is No Doctor, is perhaps the most widely-used health care manual for health workers, clinicians, and others involved in primary health care delivery and health promotion programs 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 prevent common diseases. Special attention is focused on nutrition, infection and disease prevention, and diagnostic techniques as primary ways to prevent and treat health problems.
This 2009 reprint includes new material on childhood vaccinations, HIV prevention and medicines, treating serious injuries, the resurgence of yaws, drug resistance and changes in STI and malaria medications, asthma treatment, and the differences in signs of heart attacks in women and men
