The Prescriber

{Prescribed pills}

This newsletter promotes rational drug use and correct case management in basic health services. Its main audience is front-line health staff in developing countries, both in the public and private sectors. As this audience lacks access to reliable and easily understood materials on important health and nutrition problems, The Prescriber's emphasis is on conveying information of the highest technical quality in the most clear and practical way possible. Each issue of The Prescriber goes through a rigorous review process, in collaboration with the World Health Organization and, in some cases, other international agencies. 
The Prescriber is published four times a year in a simple newsletter format and consists of 16 pages. To reach a worldwide audience, there are six language editions -- English, French, Spanish, Portuguese, Russian and Arabic.

The current issue - Malaria: prevention and treatment is available as a portable document format (PDF) file (292 KB) for viewing with the Adobe Acrobat Reader. If you do not have the Reader, you can retrieve one for your platform free of charge from Adobe Systems Inc.
