New publication - Children’s Health in Emergencies: practical guidelines for health workers

Produced as a special supplement to Healthlink Worldwide's popular international newsletter Child Health Dialogue, this publication will provide a unique audience of mainly indigenous health and development workers with up-to-date, practical information on appropriate policies and procedures to follow in the event of an emergency occurring in their area. Written in clear, easy to understand language, it explains what health workers can do in the early stages of an emergency. It describes how management and prevention of childhood illnesses such as diarrhoea and malaria differs in emergency situations, the basics about malnutrition in emergencies and how to work with communities and other organisations.

Single copies are free to indigenous organisations in developing countries. For others the cost is £2.50/US$5 and includes postage. Bulk copies are also available free to organisations that are able to distribute the publication through their own channels.

For further information contact Coral Jepson, Healthlink Worldwide, Cityside, 40 Adler Street, London 1E 1EE. Telephone: 0207 539 1570; Fax: 0207 539 1580 or visit our web site; http://www.healthlink.org.uk
