This book aims to show health workers how to identify causes of ill health in the community so as to provide more effective and less costly health interventions. It also discusses common contributors to ill health, with particular attention to commonly overlooked non-medical causes. Among the topics explored are basic demographics, water and sanitation, food preparation and nutrition, community resources, health and endemic diseases. There is also an introduction to the growing field of Rapid Epidemiological Assessment. The book is intended for the rural health care worker who has limited resources, and is also ideal for use in community medicine courses.
