Picture dictionary for refugee aid and health
Communication between asylum seekers and those who look after them is sometimes not easy.
On three pages our free online dictionary explains important medical terms by means of pictures and pictograms in German, English, French and Arabic. It can be downloaded and printed out from apotheken-umschau.de . This dictionary has turned out to be a good way of non-verbal communication because its pictures speak for themselves and can easily be used to indicate all kinds of urgent health problems, e.g. when people are in need of asthma inhaler or insulin.
