Annotation: This 356-page diagnostic and treatment manual, updated on September 26, 2019, is designed for use by medical professionals involved in curative care at the dispensary and hospital levels. It details preventive measures such as vaccines that patients can be offered to protect them from diseases. Its primary objective is to cure the individual patient of disease, minimize the impact of that disease on the patient, and reduce the risk of transmission.
