DetailsThis book is based on the latest evidence and guidelines available, including Cochrane reviews and WHO guidelines. This book attempts to build on existing efforts and seeks to further identify an internationally applicable minimum standard of healthcare in these poorly resourced hospitals and to reflect the management of problems inherent in low-resource, disadvantaged hospitals. It suggests global minimum standards, both in the treatments given, but also in the medical ethics which should be practised in caring for these particularly vulnerable patients.
