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 people-from diarrhea to tuberculosis, from helpful and harmful home remedies to the cautious use of 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 updated information about malaria, TB, sexually transmitted infections, drug addiction, HIV and AIDS including antiretroviral therapy, and many other topics.
