Literacy and Educational Materials
Health Materials

Health is an important area in which literacy can help to improve the lifestyle of a community. SIL fieldworkers partner with community members to develop local language materials on topics such as: clean water, hepatitis, malaria, cholera, childbirth, HIV, tuberculosis, and instruction and training of community health promoters.

Currently the global threat of an Avian Flu pandemic has prompted the development of materials to inform ethnic groups about some preventive measures their communities can take.
