  • This book is the work based on twenty- two months of field work in Nepal between January 1989 an March 1992, about a case which seemed to reveal a communication gap between the health workers and the family of a patient in one of the TB clinics. The search for an explanation, for some key to information which could illuminate the background for the choices that were made. This book will mainly refer to tuberculosis patients. The disease is very prevalent in Nepal and presents its own challenges to health workers
