Dr. Marwan Jabr and Dr. Hassan Salman Layqah translated from English into Arabic the book "Disaster Medicine: Comprehensive Principles Practices", a book of Kristi L. Koening and Carl H. Schultz.  The book contains the latest findings of how to deal with different kinds of disasters, understanding the priorities, allocation of resources, and spreading the health awareness and meeting the needs of injured and afflicted. The work is a comprehensive and important reference and it is rare to find similar books in Arabic. Therefore, its translation is a valuable addition to the Arabic library and a support to academic, educational and training programs in disaster medicine.
