Hesperian Haiti Health Information Wiki

This post appeared on the BHIC blog – for those working with the Haitian population.

Hesperian Haiti Health Information Wiki

Hesperian has assembled a Haiti Health Information wiki http://creole.hesperian.net/ on which, along with free downloads of emergency health materials in Creole, they have posted free downloads of Hesperian and MEDICC’s Health for All: 4-Language Glossary of Community Health Care Terms (Creole-Spanish-English-French). The glossary contains more than 4,000 entries and it is especially to anyone working in Haiti, since Creole is the most widely-spoken language there; Haitian medics are often instructed in Spanish; Haitian clinical records are written in French; and many volunteers speak English.

If you have adapted Hesperian materials for Haiti to produce flyers, pamphlets, posters, or books with different content or illustrations, please contact tawnia@hesperian.org so Hesperian may share them on the wiki. Those interested in contributing terms to Health for All: 4-Language Glossary of Community Health Care Terms (Creole-Spanish-English-French), can post a note under the “discussion” tab.
