ECHO Minnesota, a Twin Cities based nonprofit organization that ensures people with limited English proficiency receive life-saving health and safety information, has created video, audio, print and other resources on H1N1 in multiple languages. The material is available free of charge to all public media outlets.
The PSAs and other resources are available in Amharic, Arabic, English, Hmong, Karen, Khmer (Cambodian), Laotian, Oromo, Russian, Somali, Spanish and Vietnamese.
In addition to the PSAs, ECHO Minnesota has made available a comprehensive 20-minute video program in seven languages. The video provides information about symptoms, vaccines, risk factors, care suggestions and common misperceptions.
The audio, video and written material, produced in partnership with Twin Cities Public Television and the Minnesota Department of Health (MDH), is available in website and broadcast versions. The ECHO Minnesota H1N1 page is here, and it includes tips on how to “localize” the resources for your particular audience.
