In most Third World countries health needs are as immense as resources are limited.

In its 21 years of confronting this reality Médecins Sans Frontières has acquired highly valuable knowledge, knowledge that has been largely shaped by contact with the doctors, nurses and health agents of host countries.

Guides and manuals for Médecins Sans Frontières's field operations have been created thanks to this accumulated knowledge and the recommendations made by the great medical institutions.

This guide ESENTIAL DRUGS - PRACTICAL GUIDELINES, published after Clinical Guidelines - diagnostic and treatment manual, Minor surgical procedures in remote areas and Primary surgical procedures, is especially intended for all those who administer daily medical care in impoverished situations and will, we hope, facilitate their work.
