Infectious diseases are still the major cause of childhood illness and death in Arab countries from Morocco to Saudi Arabia, and indeed in many other developing countries throughout the world. However, socioeconomic development, better nutrition, improved sanitation, medical advances such as vaccination, and specific host factors, have lead to a distinctive pattern of infections which appears in some areas to be in transition between the patterns found in developed and developing countries. This book discusses the epidemiology, aetiology and management of infections common in Arab children and presents the latest information on the effects of immunisation and therapy. It will be essential reading for paediatricians, primary health care teams and health administrators in developing countries, and for microbiologists, epidemiologists and infectious disease specialists throughout the world.
