A selection of informative, illustrated posters and leaflets from Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) UK. They provide a clear insight into the work of the charity in responding to health emergencies, conflicts and disasters. They are mainly suitable for secondary students but there is also a leaflet designed for primary pupils. The following resources can be downloaded free:
- Rapid interventions: A graphic explaining how MSF responds to emergencies during the first 72 hours, including their RISK kit (Rapid Intervention Surgical Kit) that can fit in the back of an MSF Land Cruiser and be deployed within hours.
- How we treat Ebola: Explains what Ebola is and how MSF treats it. Includes an illustration of a treatment centre and shows the special protective clothing staff wear when working inside. There is also a supporting PowerPoint for schools.
- Inside an MSF cholera tent: Detailed illustration of a specialised isolation ward designed to manage and treat cholera patients.
- MSF’s blow-up, plug and play hospital: Shows how mobile ‘inflatable hospitals’ act as fully functioning medical facilities during conflicts or in the aftermath of natural disasters.
- Water of life: In the summer of 2012, MSF faced the dual challenge of finding a source of clean water while providing enough treated water to people in Maban, in the north of South Sudan.
- Chain of life: Getting vaccines to where they are needed, and keeping them cold.
- King of the Road – the MSF Land Cruiser: How MSF relies on this sturdy workhorse. Anna Kent, a midwife, describes the onboard equipment they are kitted out with to transform them into ambulances. The reverse of the leaflet provides cut-outs for pupils to make their own ambulances.
- MSF Leaflet for primary school children: Written to explain to young children the work of MSF: who MSF treats and where MSF works.
