NDLSF Participating Partner in TELL ME TELLME 2

The National Disaster Life Support Foundation (NDLSF) is pleased to report that it has been a participating partner in a European Union Grant entitled "Transparent communication in Epidemics: Learning Lessons from experience, delivering effective Messages, providing Evidence (TELL ME)”.  The grant supported the efforts of 12 organizations located in 7 countries.  The aim of the project is to provide evidence and to develop models for improved risk communication during infectious disease crises.  TELL ME combines public health, social sciences, behavioral sciences, political sciences, law, ethics, communication and media, in order to develop original communication strategies regarding complicated messages and advice based on uncertainties, also addressing vaccine-resistant groups.  For more information about this project please visit the TELL ME web-site at http://tellmeproject.eu.
