From the GMR: NLM Haiti Earthquake Page

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 send your comments and suggestions about additional health information content to tehip@teh.nlm.nih.gov. This information is compiled by the Disaster Information Management Research Center, Specialized Information Services, US National Library of Medicine.
