GIDEON, a publisher of reputable online health information, has released an e-book on infectious diseases in Haiti. The Infectious Diseases of Haiti is available, free, for use by health care professionals and offers snap-shot data and clinical information for the 198 human infectious diseases known to occur in Haiti. For each infectious agent, a table provides key data including vector, vehicle, incubation period, diagnostic tests, and adult and pediatric treatment protocols. Additional clinical information, including original references, is also provided.
The book was already in progress when the recent earthquake occurred in Haiti and its development was accelerated afterwards.
