For your viewing pleasure, a few of the public health messages I’ve run across this summer:
Paris, France: Notice about influenza and other respiratory diseases posted in a restroom
“Wash your hands multiple times per day”
“When you sneeze or cough, cover your mouth & nose with your sleeve”
“If you have flu symptoms, call your doctor”
Hatyai, Thailand: Handwashing signs (notice the germ-monsters) posted outside the public restroom near our favorite market (Photo courtesy of MG)
(Sorry, can’t translate these for you!)
Bangkok, Thailand: Advertisement for a new application designed to bring health materials and lifestyle tips to the masses of Thai people who rely heavily on mobile technology.
Sook Library : Open source health and wellness materials distributed through a free app, advertised in partnership with the local public transit authorities.
What kind of messages have you seen? What seem to be the talked-about public health concerns where you are?
