Description

This is a comprehensive guidebook for Western physicians and nurses delivering health care in the developing world, particularly as volunteers in refugee camps. The first section deals with basics such as epidemiology and health planning, environmental health and sanitation, training health workers, immunizations, family planning, and nursing care. The second section covers medical and surgical specialty care. The final section is a concise guide to the diagnosis and management of infectious diseases that commonly affect refugees. Emphasis is placed on the three main causes of morbidity and mortality in refugee camps: diarrhoeal diseases, infectious diseases, and malnutrition. It is important that expatriate health workers receive training before serving abroad. This book will make a vital contribution to such training and will serve as a valuable reference for those providing health care in the developing world under all the pressures of emergency situations.show more
