Low-resource medicine

Welcome. This blog will discuss low-resource medicine--that is, medicine that is practiced in settings where the things we take for granted in a modern hospital may not be available on a consistent basis. This blog is about places where creative improvisation is needed, where corners must be cut, where human judgment may have to take the place of technology--and where certain kinds of technology can make all the difference in the world. This blog is intended not only to provoke conversation but also serve as an electronic resource to health care workers around the world.
