National Standard Treatment Guidelines for the Primary Level


This national standard treatment guidelines (STGs) manual is designed for use at the first-level (i.e., primary) facilities delivering the Basic Package of Health Services (BPHS). The guidelines can also be used by general practitioners in their private practice. The manual was conceived to address, in the most practical way possible, the problems faced by clinical staff at the first-level facilities. The references used are the existing Ministry of Public Health (MoPH) guidelines for specific conditions, WHO references when MoPH guidelines were insufficient, and specialized works when deemed necessary.
