This book was written to help women care for their own health, and to help community health workers or others meet women’s health needs. We have tried to include information that will be useful for those with no formal training in health care skills, and for those who do have some training.
Although this book covers a wide range of women’s health problems, it does not cover many problems that commonly affect both women and men, such as malaria, parasites, intestinal problems, and other diseases. For information on these kinds of problems, see Where There Is No Doctor or another general medical book.
Hesperian Foundation encourages others to copy, reproduce, or adapt to meet local needs any or all parts of this book, including the illustrations, provided the parts reproduced are distributed free or at cost—not for profit.
