Principles of Medicine in Africa combines classical clinical medicine with a rich understanding of the major environmental and cultural influences on health and disease, providing comprehensive guidance for anyone intending to practise medicine in Africa. Disease is presented in the context of family and culture, and the effects of inequality and problems of limited resources are addressed. The authors have a wealth of experience in front line healthcare and provide practical, evidence-based management guidelines for all the common and less common conditions likely to be encountered. This fourth edition has been thoroughly updated to incorporate the latest research findings and management guidelines. It includes an expanded section on maternal and child health, but careful editing has generated a slimmer volume, whilst retaining all of the essential content. This is the one essential text for medical students and healthcare professionals wanting a complete and up-to-date reference book on medicine in Africa.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Review of the previous edition: 'This is a big book, physically and intellectually, and must rank among the very best on health care anywhere.' The Lancet
'... extremely student friendly ... highly readable and well-edited, the textbook covers all aspects of diseases in the tropics ... extremely practical ... an up-to-date masterpiece ...' Journal of the American Medical Association
'Unlike most conventional textbooks that take either a systemic or syndromic approach, this book provides a synthesis to address the major health concerns facing Africa's inhabitants ... The book's contributors all write with an African audience in mind: management guidelines are pertinent and in keeping with the realities for physicians who practise in Africa - with material, financial, and workforce constraints ... Principles of Medicine in Africa should not only appeal to physicians practising in Africa but also to anyone who has an interest in the practice of medicine in a challenging, resource-constrained environment.' The Lancet
