9780333516515: Where There is No Doctor: Village Health Care Handbook

With 3 million copies in print in over 50 languages, Where There Is No Doctor is the most widely used health care manual in use in developing countries today. Using simple language and hundreds of drawings, the book provides information about recognising, treating and preventing common illnesses and injuries. But it is far more than simple first aid information. It covers a wide range of subjects that affect the health of the villager - from diarrhoea to tuberculosis, from helpful and harmful home remedies to the cautious use of certain modern medicines. Special importance is placed on cleanliness, a healthy diet, vaccination, childbirth and family planning. The African edition covers diseases commonly found in Africa.

About the Author:

A biologist and educator by training, David Werner is a long-time health activist in village health care, and community-based rehabilitation. He has worked in more than 50 countries helping to facilitate health workshops and training programs, and has been a consultant for UNICEF, WHO, UNDP, and the Peace Corps, and has received awards and/or fellowships from the World Health Organization, the American Pediatric Association, the American Medical Writers Association, and the MacArthur Foundation.

Carol Thuman, RN, FNP, MS, works at the Alameda County Medical Center, specializing in women's health care.

Jane Maxwell holds a master's degree in public health, and has additional training in both medical anthropology and journalism. Jane has worked in community-based health care settings in Mexico, Nepal, several countries in Africa, and with under-served urban communities in the United States.

Review:

The Hesperian Foundation has been selling (this) Third World medical manual at a brisk pace for more than 25 years...(This) classic public-health text has meant survival for thousands in the Third World since the early 1970s, according to officials from the World Health Organization and the U.S. Peace Corps...it stands as arguably the most widely use public-health manual in the world, according to WHO...WHO officials noted that since 1978, it, too, has adopted the kind of community-based approach to health care exemplified by (Where There Is No Doctor). Both WHO and UNICEF now buy (the book) for their field offices... --Monica Eng, Chicago Tribune

I consider Where There Is No Doctor my health bible. I carry it with me on every trip I take, and refer to it often. The information provided in this book is simple, straight forward, and easy to read. I would highly recommend that any person planning to serve overseas have a personal copy for reference. --Anita Good, Mennonite Central Committee, Honduras

Where There Is No Doctor is an indispensable resource...This book has been, quite literally, a lifesaver for the poor even where there is a doctor. --Paul Farmer, Harvard Medical School; Co-Founder, Partners in Health

Home health care manuals are a dime a dozen, but this one is in a league by itself...This amazing manual...successfully brings together modern concepts of public health and personal health care into a usable and understandable format for the Third World villager. If you are a physician, dentist or nurse planning to volunteer on a medical mercy mission, review this book ahead of time and take it with you. --Annals of Internal Medicine, vol. 125, no.12
