Healthy Roads Media

Healthy Roads Media: "Health information access is a basic healthcare need. Literacy, health-literacy, illness, aging, disability and language are all issues that can pose barriers to obtaining basic health information. This site contains free health education materials in a number of languages and a variety of formats. They are being developed to study the value of these formats in providing health information for diverse populations in a variety of settings. We need your feedback! Our Materials There are many contributors to Healthy Roads Media. Our text is always from reliable sources and the information is reviewed regularly. Sometimes our partners provide both English and non-English text. We only accept translated materials that have been created through a quality controlled process. If Healthy Roads Media does the translation, then the work is carried out by certified translators, again through a quality controlled process. We work to make sure that the translations are done in a way to make them easy-to-read and as accessible as possible to people with literacy challenges. High quality translation is a complex and difficult process, especially when trying to accurately communicate health information. We welcome any suggestions."

This is an extremely valuable resource - we need to grow this !
