HEALTH EDUCATION PROGRAM
FOR
DEVELOPING COUNTRIES
(THE MOST IMPORTANT KNOWLEDGE)
Most patients we see in both developed and developing
countries are suffering from diseases that are preventable
.  
Of all their healthcare needs, the greatest by far is for reliable
health care information. Although  life-saving information is
available from the best evidence-based sources, it seldom
reaches our patients or even their healthcare providers.
---This program was created to provide the most important
evidence-based healthcare information to the people who need
it most.  
The program:
1.
empowers physicians, patients, families, churches and the
local community to save lives and relieve suffering through
health promotion and prevention of their most common and
serious health conditions.
2. addresses the most important health problems in
"developed" as well as "developing" countries
3. is based on the most critical global health care needs as
specified in the latest World Health Organization (WHO)
World Health Reports.
4. emphasizes the top 10 leading risk factors globally that
cause the most deaths and suffering.
5. includes the world-wide epidemic of heart disease, stroke,
diabetes and other non-communicable diseases (The "Slow
Motion Disaster").
6. describes WHO guidelines for prevention and care of these
as well as other common diseases through “reducing risk and
promoting healthy life.”
7. includes mental health and other recommendations for
recovering from disasters, physical or sexual assault, or other
serious accidental or war-inflicted injury.  
8. enables a holistic approach to care of the whole person:
body, mind and spirit.    
9. incorporates WHO guidelines such as “Integrated
Management of Childhood Illness” and provides additional
lifesaving evidence-based guidelines for care from Centers for
Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and other WHO
collaborating partners.
10. includes two PDF files for each language: The written
Handbook, as well as corresponding 60 full color
Illustrations.
--The PDF files are either shown directly on computer
monitors, or printed in the 8.5 x 11 inch letter-size.  
--The PDF Illustration files are also used for large screen
projections, and can also be enlarged (129%) to make 11 x 17
inch laminated posters by your local printer.
11. is free for downloading in five languages (with more
coming).
12. enables the integration of primary care and community
health
at the hospital, clinic/health center, and
family/community levels of care. This remains the
key to
community transformation and the success of healthcare
systems in both developed and developing countries
