This Bilingual Dictionary of Health Related Terms (English-Spanish and Spanish-English) was developed as an instrument for health care personnel and other professionals working with the Latino population in the United States. The main purpose of the dictionary is to strengthen communication between Spanish-speaking populations and the health workers serving them, and facilitate dialogue by reducing cultural and linguistic barriers.
Besides the proper terms in English and Spanish, this dictionary contains many popular expressions used in Mexico and Central America to describe names, signs and symptoms of illness. This fourth edition includes new terms on several health topics, including infectious diseases, chronic diseases, environmental health, and managed health care.
This is a publication of: Health Initiative of the Americas UC Berkeley, School of Public Health, the Office of Binational Border Health California Department of Public Health.
