USP DI is considered to be an authoritative source of unbiased drug
information and is used in many countries around the world. I have
several copies of the 1997 editions of USP DI Volume 1 'Drug
Information for the Health Care Professional' and Vol.2 'Advice for
the Patient - Drug information in lay language' which I can ship to
interested groups primarily in developing countries.
Please note that one set of books are available for U.S. Dollars 3.00
ONLY (original price over U.S. Dollars 200.00 each set). However, it
is very expensive to ship the books overseas from the U.S. It costs
U.S. Dollars 40.00 (approx.) to air mail one set (both Vol. 1 and
Vol.2) to Pakistan. Anyone interested to receive the book has to
pay/arrange mailing costs in U.S. Dollars.
Ideally, I would prefer if any organization/agency supports us by
bearing the shipping costs for mailing the books in developing
countries. For example, last year Christian Medical Commission in
Geneva helped distribution of the books in Kenya and WHO/PAHO in
Latin American countries. Also, a few individuals in the U.S. took
the books with them to groups in developing countries as a personal
baggage when traveling and attending meetings or paid for the
Individuals or groups interested in receiving USP DIs should write
to me DIRECTLY (email: firstname.lastname@example.org) as soon as possible and so should
organizations who are willing to support distribution by paying
shipping cost. PLEASE DO NOT REPLY to the E-DRUG address.
