A new page of Haiti earthquake health information links is now available at http://disaster.nlm.nih.gov/dimrc/haitiearthquake.html
The page lists Web pages about the Haiti earthquake situation from both U.S. Federal agencies and NGOs (non-governmental organizations). There is also a section with links to Haitian Creole and French-language materials. Links to background information on earthquakes and subsequent health issues, such as public health assessments, emergency surgical care, and management of dead bodies, are included.
We will continue to expand the page and will add a section on hazards from concrete dust and other airborne particulates from the collapsed buildings and subsequent clean-up activities. Please let us know if you have health information content.
