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 current issue - Malaria: prevention
