This book is written for primary care providers, namely GPs, NPs, PAs, LCSWs, DMDs, and clinical psychologists, who can become familiar with the specific knowledge and skills required to provide quality care in very challenging environments of deprivation. This important book is especially relevant given increasing worldwide income disparity, the imposition of austerity measures, and the current COVID-19 pandemic. It offers primary providers knowledge and skills that can also be used in the design and implementation of care models for the large numbers of displaced people and refugees who are affected by conflict, climate change, and/or loss of economic stability and security.
