HEPATITIS B FOUNDATION UPDATES NON-ENGLISH LANGUAGE CHAPTERS

The Hepatitis B Foundation (HBF) online language chapters at http://www.hepb.org have been updated to make it easier for non-English speaking people to learn about hepatitis B. The chapters are arranged on a split screen, with both the foreign translation and English language shown side-by-side. This makes it easy for all family members to read the information in a language they are most comfortable with. It also makes it easy to print and share the information with your doctor. Visit the HBF's Simplified-Chinese, Chinese-Traditional, Vietnamese, and Spanish language chapters at the following:

http://www.hepb.org/simplifiedchinese

CDC ISSUES "SUMMARY OF NOTIFIABLE DISEASES—UNITED STATES, 2004"

[The following is cross-posted from the Immunization Action Coalition's "IAC EXPRESS" electronic newsletter, June 19, 2006.]

CDC published "Summary of Notifiable Diseases—United States, 2004" in the June 16 issue of MMWR Summary of Notifiable Diseases.

The summary has two primary sections. They are Part 1: Summaries of Notifiable Diseases in the United States, 2004; and Part 2: Graphs and Maps for Selected Notifiable Diseases in the United States, 2004. The opening paragraph of the preface is reprinted below.

***********************

The "Summary of Notifiable Diseases—United States, 2004" contains the official statistics, in tabular and graphic form, for the reported occurrence of nationally notifiable infectious diseases in the United States for 2004. Unless otherwise noted, the data are final totals for 2004 reported as of December 2, 2005. These statistics are collected and compiled from reports sent by state health departments to the National Notifiable Diseases Surveillance System (NNDSS), which is operated by CDC in collaboration with the Council of State and Territorial Epidemiologists (CSTE). The summary is available at http://www.cdc.gov/mmwr/summary.html This site also includes publications from past years.

***********************

To access a web-text (HTML) version of the summary online, go to:
http://www.cdc.gov/mmwr/preview/mmwrhtml/mm5353a1.htm

Because the summary is a large file (1.7 MB), printing problems may occur because of printer memory size. One solution is to print a few pages at a time. To access more tips on downloading and printing large PDF files, go to: http://www.immunize.org/nslt.d/tips.htm
