Modern Pocket Handbook Question

This is probably a stupid question and I would imagine its been asked before but I couldn't find it. Is it just me or does the book not seem to have the death, dying and healing rules section. Not really a problem I just got it from the MSRD but I was under the impression that all the essentials were in the book and they're pretty essential, perhaps I've just missed it and if so page ref. would be greatly appreciated.
