| Clinical guidelines - Diagnostic and treatment manual |
In a health program adapted to the needs of a developing country, the curative care is an important component. Initially however, more important measures have to be implemented to provide the foundations for all programs aimed at improving the health of a community. These measures are related to:
- maternal and child health,
- health education,
- health workers training,
- community awareness and participation.
These measures should interact and complement the curative care component of the health program.
