Refugee Health Orientation Videos and Handouts From Healthy Roads Media
Several years ago the Refugee Services Section of the Ohio Department of Job and Family services produced a wonderful DVD called Safe, Smart and Healthy that provides comprehensive information that meets the health education requirements of refugee health orientation. The content was developed in 33 languages. The DVD dissemination strategy is not completely useful in reaching all new refugees and Healthy Roads Media (HRM) was contacted to see if there might be a way to reformat the video content for the web. The DVD content was broken up into 28 short segments, each covering specific topics. This makes the content useful for information sessions of various lengths and in a variety of settings. A number of these have been available for awhile.
Two new personal hygiene topics in 16 languages are now available as streaming web videos on the Healthy Roads Media Refugee Health Orientation page – http://bit.ly/1kGP8Qu
