Diseases of Children in the Subtropics and Tropics

In this book, "Each section attempts to find a balance between clinical and applied paediatrics; between curative and preventive medical care; between disease in the individual child and in the community; between maternal and child health, acknowledging that mother and child are biologically and psychologically an inseparable dyad throughout the reproductive life of the one and the prenatal, neonatal and early pre-school life of the other. A balance has to be struck between the assembly of information and instruction needed by the paediatrician in the reference centres of excellence and the study and practice of management at the level of primary care."
