"This book is invaluable for anyone involved in primary health care including doctors, nursing and health care workers at all levels. A book of extreme value to those faced with the initiation, management and sustaining of health care programmes in developing countries." The third edition of this popular book has been thoroughly revised and expanded. It is based on the latest research, best practice and updated guidelines from the World Health Organization and other authoritative sources. The book is written as a detailed yet simple how-to-manual, designed to equip and empower health workers. The book contains over 250 diagrams, illustrations and tables which make it lively, accessible and relevant. There are four parts, covering the basic principles of community based health care, starting a programme, setting up specific programmes and managing programmes. Twenty-one single subject chapters in a logical sequence take the reader through the main aspects of community based health programmes. All look at health care in the light of the millennium development goals and beyond. Designed for both rural and urban locations, the book addresses the needs of two groups of people: the field workers, programme managers, doctors or nurses involved in front line health care; and the administrators, health planners and students who seek an evidence-based but practical approach to health care in the developing world. Each chapter lists important books, websites and resources and further references are listed at the end. These will be regularly updated through the website of community health global network.
