From the GMR: New NLM page on Chile Earthquake health-related links

NLM response to Chile earthquake. Please share with interested people.


The National Library of Medicine announces a new page of Chile earthquake information for those in the United States and elsewhere who are monitoring or responding to the medical and public health needs in Chile. It is available at http://disasterinfo.nlm.nih.gov/dimrc/chileearthquake.html.

The page lists new Web links about the Chile earthquake aftermath from both government agencies and non-governmental organizations (NGOs). People locators, social media resources, and alerts for travelers to Chile are also listed.

A separate page on "Earthquakes - Resources for Response and Recovery" (http://disasterinfo.nlm.nih.gov/dimrc/earthquakes.html) links to background information on earthquakes and subsequent health issues, such as traumatic injuries, guidelines for responders, stress and coping, and sanitation issues.

Please send your comments and suggestions about additional Chile-related 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.
