In partnership with Hesperian, STLI has translated their classic manual Where There Is No Doctor into Kyrgyz, Uzbek, and Russian. For over 40 years, Where There Is No Doctor has been considered one of the most widely-used health care manual for health workers, clinicians, and others involved in primary health care delivery and health promotion programs around the world. The manual provides practical, easily understood information on how to diagnose, treat, and prevent common injuries and illnesses. Special attention is focused on nutrition, infection and disease prevention, and diagnostic techniques as primary ways to prevent and treat health problems.
