New Community Nutrition CD-ROM from TALC

Community Nutrition is a new CDROM containing nutrition materials for health care workers in resourcepoor areas. The CD-ROM was produced by TALC with financial support from UNICEF and other donors.

The CD-ROM is targeted at nurses, other health care providers, development professionals and trainers in resource-poor countries (particularly Africa) who have limited access to nutrition reference materials.

The CD-ROM contains several hundred recent items including manuals, training courses, academic papers, briefs, practical guidelines, pictures, powerpoint presentations and a video.

The materials have been donated by national and international agencies, universities, non-governmental organisations and private individuals.

The Community Nutrition CD-ROM is available free to health care workers in developing countries. For requests, contact TALC by email, fax or letter saying who you are, why you would like a copy and how you plan to use the CD. More details and an online request form are available at the TALC website, http://www.talcuk.org/commnut/index.htm TALC, PO Box 49, St Albans, Herts, AL1 5TX, UK.
