Where There Is No Doctor - A Village Health Care Handbook

Where There Is No Doctor is more than a book on first aid. It covers a wide range of things that affect the health of the villager - from diarrhea to tuberculosis, from helpful and harmful I home remedies to the cautious use of certain modern medicines. Special importance is placed on cleanliness, a healthy diet, and vaccinations. The book also covers in detail both childbirth and family planning. Not only does it help readers realize what they can do for themselves, but it helps them recognize which problems need the attention of an experienced health worker. This new revised edition includes information about some additional health problems - AIDS, dengue, complications from abortion, drug addiction, among many others - and updated advice on topics covered in the first edition.
