Part 2: The flip-chart and slide show "alcoholism" and how to use it

The flip-chart "Alcoholism" was created after the success of the other flip-charts "Malaria", Nutrition", "Tuberculosis" and "Intestinal Worms" which have been distributed in Central Africa for several years.

It was designed by the Bureau of Study and Research for the Promotion of Health upon the request and with the support of the Swedish Baptist Union.

An extensive test carried out by student nurses and teachers among various groups of interested persons made it possible to perfect this modern educational material.

This flip-chart consists of some forty colored pictures hung in a plywood suitcase, 42 x 65 cm; it comes in French, Portuguese and English versions.

The boxes were made in the Training Center for the Promotion of Health in Kangu-Mayombe by teams of students on holiday. They assured all the work of choosing the colors, the page layouts and making the plywood suitcases.

This booklet is issued with each flip-chart (42 x 65 cm). It serves as its directions for use, but it also accompanies a folder containing the same series of pictures in a smaller (21 x 30 cm format.

The present booklet can also be obtained separately froin the Bureau of Study and Research for the Promotion of Health, P.O.Box 1800, Kangu-Mayombe, Republic of Zaire.

It is to be hoped that each and every student, at least in teachers' colleges, nursing schools, have a copy of this explanatory booklet.

This flip-chart "Alcoholism" as well as the flip-chart "Paludism-malaria", "Tuberculosis", "Nutrition" and "Intestinal Worms", various slide and microfiche sets on the same themes, sets of educational pictures, posters, books and booklets on sanitary education, are available at the Bureau of Study and Research for the Promotion of Health, P.O.Box 1800, Kangu-mayombe, Republic of Zaire
