With 3 million copies in print in over 50 languages, Where There Is No Doctor is the most widely used health care manual in use in developing countries today. Using simple language and hundreds of drawings, the book provides information about recognising, treating and preventing common illnesses and injuries.

It covers a wide range of subjects that affect the health of the villager - from diarrhoea to tuberculosis, from helpful and harmful home remedies to the cautious use of certain modern medicines. Special importance is placed on cleanliness, a healthy diet, vaccination, childbirth and family planning. The African edition covers diseases commonly found in Africa.

Being Mortal: Medicine and What Matters in the End is a non-fiction book by American surgeon Atul Gawande. The book addresses hospice care and the current state of care in regard to age-related frailty, serious illness and impending death. Gawande's reflections are interspersed with personal stories.
In the beginning of the book Gawande explores different models of senior living; including concepts such as poorhouses, multigenerational households and nursing homes that have become a destination for many elderly citizens in the US. Gawande explores personal stories as well as accounts from individuals with experience in senior living. Among them are geriatric doctors and Keren Brown Wilson, one of the originators of the assisted living concept. He recalls personal accounts of individuals dealing with age-related frailty, serious illness, death and his own confrontation with mortality. In the latter part of the book, he shifts to end of life medical care where he postulates that hospice is the most humane model of care. The two sections include two of Gawande’s New Yorker essays, which make up two of the book’s eight chapters — "Things Fall Apart" and "Letting Go"
