Principles of Medicine in Africa is the one essential text for medical students and healthcare professionals wanting a complete and up-to-date reference book on medicine in Africa. With more than 100 contributors, all of whom have worked in Africa, the third edition, published in 2004, was described in a Lancet review as “A formidable fountain of African medical knowledge; a big book, physically and intellectually, which must rank among the very best on health care anywhere.” The new fourth edition has been thoroughly updated to incorporate the latest research findings and management guidelines. It includes an expanded section on maternal and child health, but careful editing has generated a slimmer volume, whilst retaining all of the essential content.
Admission: Free and open to all with no ticket required. Entry is on a first come, first served basis.
