Children’s health in emergencies: a practical approach (CHESS)

Children's Health in Emergencies: a practical approach was produced as a 16-page special supplement to Healthlink Worldwide's popular international newsletter, Child Health Dialogue.

CHESS provides up-to-date and practical information for health and development workers on appropriate policies/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, how management and prevention of childhood illnesses such as diarrhoea and malaria differs in emergency situations, and how they can work with communities and other organisations.

Healthlink Worldwide is seeking to make this publication as widely available as possible to individuals and organisations working in any type of emergency situation or wishing to prepare their health workers against any such occurrence (whether on a local or national scale). Single copies are free to health workers and individuals in developing countries. For others, the cost is £2.50/US$5.00. Bulk copies (20 copies or more) are also available free to organisations that are able to distribute the publication through their own channels.

For more information contact: Healthlink Worldwide, Cityside, 40 Adler Street, London E1 1EE, UK. E-mail: info@healthlink.org.uk
