Guide Travel Medicine South African

Saw this on Facebook. I don't know whether it covers broken bones or other physical injuries but it will probably be an interesting read with the topics mentioned.

We have received stock of the book A Guide to the Practice of Travel Medicine in the South African Context published by the South African Society of Travel Medicine. It has over 220 pages with chapters on rabies, malaria, the pregnant traveller, dive medicine, travelling to altitude, marine envenomation and the management of snakebite. The book costs R120.00 and can be ordered from ASI - please Email Sake (info@asiorg.co.za).
