International Maternal & Child Health Care: a practical manual for hospitals worldwide Written and reviewed by over 100 experts from around the world, and financed and produced by the international medical charity,MCAI, this comprehensive (918 pages) textbook is targeted at health workers treating pregnant women and adolescents, newborn infants, and children admitted to hospitals in countries around the world, but particularly those in resource limited settings. In response to health worker demands for a comprehensive reference and practical resource, this textbook addresses a full range of possible illnesses, conditions, and injuries and includes all complications of pregnancy and delivery. Based on the latest evidence, including Cochrane Reviews and WHO Guidelines, this textbook identifies an internationally applicable, minimum standard of care in poorly-resourced hospitals and reflects the management of problems often inherent in such settings. The textbook also gives practical information, such as how to undertake procedures, and includes treatment algorithms. Free or subsidised copies may be available to health workers in public hospitals that provide free care to women and children in low and lower-middle income countries. Please see www.mcai.org.uk for more information.
