Improving Outreach to At-Risk Latino Populations for Pandemic Influenza and Public Health Emergency Preparedness [open pdf - 0B]
From the Introduction: "In the event of a public health emergency, such as a pandemic influenza, it is important that health authorities are able to quickly reach the entire potentially affected population with appropriate information. Effective emergency risk communication requires the selection of appropriate messages, messengers, and methods of delivery to disseminate information to audiences before, during, and after the event. [...] This document is an updated version of the 'Best Practice Guidelines: Outreach to Latino Hard-to-Reach Populations: Emergency Preparedness', published by the Health Initiative of the Americas (HIA) in 2010. It provides best practices to support public health authorities and providers in connecting with community-based organizations in their efforts to reach the at-risk Latino population in the event of a pandemic or a public health emergency."
