Disease Prevention Pamphlets in Vernacular

ASHA Seattle volunteers have come up with pamphlets in English and Tamil to prevent the outbreak of disease and epidemics amongst both the volunteers and victims. They have run it through doctors and got them approved medically.

Please distribute these links and/or pamphlets widely, to all agencies that you know are involved in relief work. It might come up in useful with both Tamil Nadu and perhaps even North/North-Eastern Sri Lanka. ASHA is constantly reviewing and updating the info.

You can access the pamphlets at:Disease Prevention Pamphlets. There are also some excellent maps of the affected areas, showing the villages and towns affected in detail, and other resources related to the Tsunami and the relief efforts.

Here are the individual links to the pamphlets:

Can someone translate these documents into Thai, Singhalese and Indonesian? I am sure that the information will be as relevant to them as to Indians.
