Haiti earthquake health information

A new page of Haiti earthquake health information links is now available at http://disaster.nlm.nih.gov/dimrc/haitiearthquake.html.

The page lists NEW web pages about the Haiti earthquake situation from both government agencies and non-governmental organizations (NGOs).

There is also a section on Haitian Creole and French-language materials.

Links to background information on earthquakes and subsequent health issues, such as public health assessments, emergency surgical care, and management of dead bodies, are included.

The page will continue to expand and will add a section on hazards from concrete dust and other airborne particulates from the collapsed buildings and subsequent clean-up activities. Please let me know if you have suggestions for additional health information content.

For more information, contact the Disaster Information Management Research Center Specialized Information Services Division National Library of Medicine National Institutes of Health Bethesda, MD 20892-5467 cindy_love@nlm.nih.gov
