Resources for Recent Public Health Emergencies!
The National Library of Medicine (NLM) recently developed resource lists for three public health emergencies affecting both local and global communities. An incident Web page was created to gather resources on the emerging health issues arising from the Zika Virus and two PDF documents on recent chemical incidents have been updated.
Links to these resources are listed below and are also available on the NLM Disaster Health home page: https://disasterinfo.nlm.nih.gov.
Further information is available from two recent NN/LM PSR NewsBits postings:
