Note from Community Health Cell

Dear Friends,

This is a note to let you know that the medical sector coordination group with which we are working have tried to structure the medical relief and supplies in a more rational way , so that we reach supplies to teams in the field, in planned ways . The note below explains it all.

Medical and Health Care enquiries to be handled by CHC 5531518/ 5525372 (Telefax) Email: sochara@vsnl.com

Indian Medical Association, Bangalore, Telefax: 6703253 are willing to receive supplies directly as an alternative. The "medical relief and health care" note may be freely circulated on "mailers and "websites".

CHC's focus will be especially on orienting volunteers/ teams to general situation analysis, medical challenges, community health challenges, public health issues, psychosocial consequences, do's and don'ts for planning, organisation and team work and psychosocial preparedness. A training for potential 'medical' volunteers is scheduled for 6th Feb 2001 at the Indian Medical Association, A. V. Road (Beside Tipu's Summer Palace), Bangalore. A few more at other institutions is possible .

Best wishes,
Ravi Narayan
