Infectious disease accounts for most of the pathology in Africa—all health care providers there encounter infection every day of their working lives.

This practical manual can be used in the field as a tool to help with decision-making at all levels of the health care hierarchy.

The decision trees and standard therapeutic protocols—mainly requiring only the most basic laboratory facilities and drugs—have been compiled in accordance with the policies recommended in national programs for the fight against transmissible diseases.

The scope of the infectious diseases tackled is necessarily limited to community-acquired infections and those which can be cured most frequently.

This book is also aimed at physicians with patients who have returned from a trip abroad with an infectious disease.
