This book aims to review and discuss some of the aspects related to the development of diagnostic methods forlow resource areas. Most of the authors participating in this initiative are involved in research and development in this area and have kindly contributed chapters tailored for this purpose.

We have included images related to traditional intangible heritage of different populations, as a symbolic message to reflect the diversity of populations over the world, which should be considered in the development of any tool aimed to ensuring a sustainable, healthy community.

This is our modest contribution to improve the health of the poorest areas of the world.
