In light of the FDA and CDC’s authorization of new COVID-19 vaccines, organizations may find existing NRC-RIM materials on boosters, waves, variants, and other general COVID-19 vaccine information useful. Customizable and translated into more than 40 languages, these are among their most popular resources to date.
In collaboration with the International Rescue Committee (IRC), NRC-RIM released Know Your Rights fact sheets in English, Spanish, French, and Haitian Creole. Aimed at Cubans, Haitians, and others from Latin America who are humanitarian parole recipients, the fact sheet explains eligibility for healthcare services, translation and interpretation, privacy concerns and more.
NRC-RIM is working on several other health education collections for their Afghan Health Portfolio, including wildfire smoke, mental health and stress, and respiratory illnesses. These will be released over the next several weeks.
