    a| Annotation b| Many patients who present to district &#40;first-referral&#41; level hospitals require surgical treatment for trauma, obstetric, abdominal or orthopedic emergencies. Often surgery cannot be safely postponed to allow their transfer to a secondary or tertiary-level hospital but many district hospitals in developing countries have no specialist surgical teams and are staffed by medical, nursing, and paramedical personnel who perform a wide range of surgical procedures often with inadequate training. The quality of surgical and acute care is often further constrained by poor facilities, inadequate low-technology apparatus and limited supplies of drugs, materials, and other essentials.<br /><br />The mission of the team responsible for Clinical Procedures in the World Health Organization Department of Essential Health Technologies &#40;EHT&#41; is to promote the quality of clinical care through the identification, promotion and standardization of appropriate procedures, equipment and materials, particularly at district hospital level. WHO/BCT has identified education and training as a particular priority, especially for non-specialist practitioners who practice surgery and anesthesia. It has therefore developed Surgical Care at the District Hospital as a practical resource for individual practitioners and for use in undergraduate and postgraduate programs in-service training and continuing medical education programs. The manual is a successor of three earlier publications that are widely used throughout the world and that remain important reference texts: General Surgery at the District Hospital &#40;WHO 1988&#41;, Surgery at the District Hospital: Obstetrics Gynecology Orthopedics and Traumatology &#40;WHO 1991&#41;, Anesthesia at the District Hospital &#40;WHO 1988; second edition 2000&#41;.<br /><br />This new manual draws together material from these three publications into a single volume which includes new and updated material, as well as material from Managing Complications in Pregnancy and Childbirth: A Guide for Midwives and Doctors &#40;WHO 2000&#41;.<br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br />
