Books Info:

Pohnpei Primary Health Care Manual free pdf [Black and White Edition] Pohnpei, one of the four island members of the Federated States of Micronesia in the Caroline Islands, has a traditional medical system developed over many generations. The Pohnpei Primary Health Care Manual compiles traditional ethnomedical information about plants and presents it within the context of Western medicine. Many common health conditions are discussed in this book, including those specific to Pohnpeian culture. Also provided is scientific information about each species, including efficacy, pharmacology and potential toxicity, where known. This book is intended as an educational manual for Pohnpei and the Pacific region, an area where traditional medicine and some of the plants used in its practice, are endangered resources. Based on a decade of on-island research and extensive literature review, the book has been produced by a group of Pohnpeian and international experts, specialists in ethnomedicine, clinical care, public health, biology, conservation and Pacific Island culture.
