9384: Re: 9383: Where there is no Doctor (fwd)

From: E Vedrine <evedrine@hotmail.com>

The Kreyol title is: *Kote Fanm Pa Jwenn Doktč*

2000. BURNS, A. August, Ronnie Lovich, Jane Maxwell, Katharine Shapiro. Kote 
Fanm Pa Jwenn Doktč. The Hesperian Foundation. Berkeley: CA (USA). 585 p. 
Kreyol translation: Jean Wilner Steve. - Kreyol introduction by Rose-Anne 
Auguste (Founder of APROSIFA). - Kreyol dictionary (pp. 544-559), definition 
of 367 terms in Kreyol (many are related to the medical field, anatomy...). 
A list of drugs ("medikaman yo", pp. 488-520) divided into 2 parts: 
commercial & generic names.

One of the best translations I've ever seen in HC (Kreyol) and a very useful 
book in Kreyol for the medical field, people learning Kreyol and for Kreyol
