"Where There Is No Doctor - new edition!
A New Edition of Where There Is No Doctor for 2009!
Given clear, simple information, ordinary people can prevent and treat their health problems in their own homes, and they can often do it earlier, cheaper, and better than doctors can. But most books about health are dry medical texts written specifically for people with medical degrees.
For more than three decades, Where There is No Doctor has been changing the face of health care, and our newest updated edition for 2009 has arrived! With over three million copies in use in more than 200 countries, given to (and treasured by) many Peace Corps volunteers, Where There Is No Doctor is the most widely-used health care manual in the world. Health workers, villagers, school teachers, mothers, midwives, and others who understand the value of informed self-care depend on this simply written and generously illustrated book because it demystifies what doctors do and takes into account the political, social, and economic circumstances that people must consider when deciding how to take charge of their health. Where There Is No Doctor is truly a book for everyone.
Where There Is No Doctor covers a wide range of topics from diarrhea to tuberculosis, from helpful and harmful home remedies to nutrition and vaccinations. This brand new edition contains new and updated information on:
* childhood vaccinations
* HIV prevention and medicines
* treating serious injuries
* the resurgence of yaws
* drug resistance and changes in STD and malaria medications
* the differences in signs of heart attacks in women and men
* asthma treatment
and much more.
