This is an excellent book, and I think it should be read by every healthcare worker who participates in medical missions in underdeveloped countries. It is beneficial for anyone working with medical missions, either religiously affiliated or a mission that has no religious affiliation.
This is one of the best books I have read to prepare for any short term medical missions. I downloaded to kindle which actually had a great advantage. The book is thoroughly referenced and all the references can be hyperlinked to the original references.
One of the best books ever written about how to actually, and truly help others! How I wish every single doctor (including Doctors Without Borders) nurse dentist and every other well meaning practitioner had to read this before heading abroad to “help” those in need.
