Stimmen zum Buch

“The intended audience is health professionals working in the field during and after disasters of essentially every kind. … This book is excellent. Some may be intimidated when they realize how complicated, multifaceted, and challenging the provision of field-based healthcare is. This book highlights the necessity of a strong support system based on accurate, current data collected in the field.” (Anna A Helm, Doody’s Book Reviews, April 10, 2020)
