Reading about the management of children with symptomatic HIV infection was very useful. I learnt about nutritional support, preventing and treating opportunistic infections, antiretroviral therapy, emotional and family support and terminal care.
I work in pharmacy, its hard work that needs a lot of patience and focus and skills which are not available here in my area like management in pharmacy, medical and nutrition information.
Patients ask questions a lot about medicines, childrens care and other things. The CDs that you sent me are full of information about nutrition and vitamins they are very good, therefore I can advise patients. I can benefit from them and do my best to help others.

Hospital Care for Children is good because it shows the milligram measurements of drugs to administer to sick children. I did not know this before I read the book.

The nursing and midwifery books were good because they were straightforward, precise and well-summarised with lots of diagrams.

These books are vital for our education, our aim is to research and improve our understanding in the medical field. The only place I can find this information in is our small hospital library. Thank you.
