Principles of Medicine in Africa (Hardback)
Language: English . Brand New Book. For students of medicine and those who practice in the front-line of medicine in Africa, this fully revised edition combines classical internal medicine with a rich understanding of the major influences on health and disease in Africa. It puts disease into the context of family and culture and is not afraid to address the effects of inequality on health and the problems of limited resources for health care. There is a much expanded section on non-communicable diseases as well as comprehensive accounts of HIV/AIDS, malaria, tuberculosis and other major infections in the continent. Forward-looking and evidence-based, this new edition reflects the emergence of new diseases and health risks in the region. Complied by the foremost international authorities, this is the one essential text for the medical student, medical officer, or postgraduate student wanting the most complete and up-to-date reference book on medicine in Africa.

A propos du livre :
'? spectacular ?'. The Lancet
'This is a big book, physically and intellectually, and must rank among the very best on health care anywhere ? The text has been skilfully edited, and tables and boxed highlights have been carefully crafted.' The Lancet
'? an excellent volume ? One need go no further than the contents pages to see the clarity of thought and the consistency in design, and the introductory chapters are witness to the editors' understanding of human ecology in Africa ? the chapters are characterized by concise text, excellent photographs, ingenious tables, easy-to-read maps and a multitude of references ? The physicians, with their solid grounding in tropical Africa, a sharper focus and a comprehensive editorial policy, produced a tome that is, with respect to Africa, better even than Manson's Tropical Diseases.' Journal of the Royal Society of Medicine
'? extremely student friendly ? highly readable and well-edited, the textbook covers all aspects of diseases in the tropics ? extremely practical ? an up-to-date masterpiece ?'. Journal of the American Medical Association
'The magnificent new edition achieves its stated aims of putting the medicine of Africa into its rural and urban context, emphasising basic mechanisms of disease ad presenting practical and relevant information for those who are at the frontline of healthcare. ? Principles of Medicine in Africa is a worthy publishing endeavour, which does great credit to its contributors and publisher, Cambridge University Press. It is a valuable addition to the reference and teaching literature on medicine in Africa, which is now relevant to the whole world thanks to globablisation of disease.' Clinical Medicine
