This deals with most of the kinds of problems that medical professionals deal with in developing countries — infectious diseases, HIV/AIDS, and other basic subjects. The appendix includes useful charts, a formulary, and references to organizations involved in medical care in developing countries. The physical size of this book is similar to a large paperback novel, so it’s easy to slip into your backpack and have available on the field.
