CDC Cholera Prevention Materials for Haiti

The CDC has just published cholera prevention manuals for use by local community health workers in Haiti.  The manual is available in English, French and Haitian Creole and is on-line at www.cdc.gov/cholera/materials.html. Direct links to the English and Creole versions can also be found at the end of this posting.

The manual covers prevention topics such as hand-washing, oral rehydration solution and safe drinking water.  It also features decisions related to caring for those who are stricken.  There is a section of community education cards and low literacy posters.  An optional power-point presentation is available, if needed.
