Overview

This book is designed to be a training guide for Western physicians and nurses going to work in developing countries, especially those preparing to care for refugees. It will serve as a practical handbook for those working in refugee clinics and hospitals, and a summary of critical issues for those who make decisions concerning refugee care. The contributors combine a broad, accurate information base with a clear focus on the practical challenges of refugee care, emphasizing the three main causes of morbidity and mortality in refugee camps: diarrheal disease, infectious disease, and malnutrition. The book will be of enormous value to all those providing health care under difficult conditions with limited resources.
