Book Aid international has successfully introduced e-readers into children’s corners in Uganda in partnership with the National Library of Uganda and World Reader. Ten libraries in Uganda now have 20 e-readers each preloaded material to support reading and education.
Such projects are being tried out in different libraries (academic and public) and for different age groups. So it would seem to be an excellent way of introducing health topics for different age or social groups either through fiction, pamphlets and even short films on different health topics.
BUT where is the suitable content to be found or does it have to be developed? Can you recommend any open access health-related material that might be made available for children (various ages) or adolescents through a public library system (preferably pictorial especially for younger children).
