This manual is the result of cooperation between many people. I would like to thank all those who have contributed in any way to its preparation, in particular, the members of the working group which met in Dundee, Scotland in November, 1978 and established the main guidelines for the first edition. I would also like to acknowledge the comments and advice given on the manual by the following people: participants in workshops at the African Medical and Research Foundation in Nairobi, Kenya, and at the College of Allied Health Sciences in Madang, Papua New Guinea; staff at the Centre for Medical Education, University of Dundee; students and staff in the Department of International Community Health, Liverpool School of Tropical Medicine, England; the teachers who read the draft versions; the people who commented on the first edition; and staff in the Division of Development of Human Resources for Health of the World Health Organization, Geneva, Switzerland. Thanks are also due to Dr G. N. Conacher, Centre for Medical Education, University of Dundee, for preparing the original cartoon illustrations. To all these people far too numerous to mention individually - my sincere thanks.
