Literacy is a luxury that many of us take for granted.  We depend on written communication for information, guidance, and access to heath care information That is why SADAG created SPEAKING BOOKS and revolutionized the way information is delivered to low literacy communities. It's exactly what it sounds like.a book that talks to the reader in his or her local  language, delivering critical information in an interactive, and educational way.

The customizable 16-page book, accompanied by local celebrity audio recordings, ensures that vital health and social messages can be seen, heard, read and understood..

We started with books on Teen Suicide prevention , HIV, AIDS and Depression, Understanding Mental Health and have developed over 30 titles, such as TB, Malaria, Polio, Vaccines for over 30 countries.

Acupuncture for Pregnancy Depression

(Ivanhoe Newswire) -- Pregnant women may have a non-drug treatment option for depression that's safer on their unborn baby.

Researchers found acupuncture can positively affect the treatment of depression for pregnant women. Currently, dealing with depression during pregnancy can be difficult due to the risks medications pose on unborn babies.

A new study included 150 participants who received eight weeks of treatment of either acupuncture specific for depression (SPEC), control acupuncture or massage therapy. The women who received the acupuncture for depression experienced the greatest decrease in depression severity.

The results of our study show that the acupuncture protocol we tested could be a viable treatment option for depression during pregnancy," study author Dr. Schnyer was quoted as saying.
