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.

"At last we have a good, lightweight, all-encompassing manual by an extremely distinguished group of international experts....Read this book before going overseas." --The New Physician
"An excellent work and should be mandatory reading for anyone involved with the medical care of refugees. Its richness comes from the way it blends the technical...with the general, as well as 'stories from the field'....The book's exhaustive cross-references allow it to be a wellspring for
further study and research sources in a most critical area of health services management." --Health Matrix
"Medical Care of Refugees achieves its goals in providing the essentials needed for medical care in a refugee camp by blending public health and interdisciplinary clinical care. The philosophies of the editors are relevant not only to refugee settings but also to many struggling health care
systems throughout the world . . . If you are a student or an established practitioner considering work in any international health or refugee setting, you should read at least the first section of this book before departing. As you pack, you should plan to take this book with you." --New England
