Risks for pregnant women in Africa
See the recent blog entry by Efemena on the risks faced by pregnant women in Africa.
That post made me think of two books that I read years ago when I was working in community health but not in Africa. Where There Is No Doctor and Helping Health Workers Learn were both from The Hesperian Foundation. This is a non-profit publisher of books and materials to help people to learn about health, to enable their communities to achieve better health through prevention and treatment. The books are written in simple English and are translated and adapted for various cultures.
