This book comprised of 8 sections that include basic concepts of community medicine, environment and health, nutrition and health, occupational health, epidemiology, health-related disciplines, health administration and organization, and allied subjects, which are further divided into 56 chapters. The book is teacher-friendly because they may appreciate the presentation of the subject matter exhaustively and clearly, having tentacles attached to various other branches of medicine such as obstetrics, pediatrics, dermatology, psychiatry and general medicine, in order to conform to the changing profile of community medicine. The book is examiner-friendly because it covers the vast areas of the subject to enable asking questions vertically, horizontally and tangentially. The book is doctor-friendly because it would help the general practitioners and the rural medical officers in providing not only curative services, but also preventive and promotive services to the community at large, motivating them to a healthier, and happier life. This book is the end result of teaching community medicine to undergraduate and postgraduate students.
