It focuses on cookbook-type diagnosis, using logical protocols/flow diagrams with no medical jargon. Similar to Where There is No Doctor, but much more text and information and fewer pictures and illustrations. Best used along side the Where There is No Doctor book.

Solar Powered LED Flashlight Keychain
“These were a big hit in our village. Perfect for remote locations where there is no electricity. No need to buy batteries because the flashlight charges in the sun. Cheaply made, but you can’t beat the price. We bought hundreds of these and either sold them or gave them away. They were very well received and very appreciated by the villagers.”
