The ¡Nunca Más! Novela Health Series was developed by the FDA Office of Women's Health to educate Hispanic women and their families about the importance of safe medication use. This education is vitally important because each year thousands of injuries and deaths are caused by improper medication use. Many of these injuries could have been prevented. Launched in October 2011, the ¡Nunca Más! initiative provides consumers and community leaders with access to four video novelas and free health materials that convey easy-to-understand messages about safe medication use.
Get Involved! Use your voice to teach your mother, sisters, daughters, and friends. Your efforts may help others avoid the problems and pain that come when they do not use medicines wisely. Use the ¡Nunca Más! Guide to help you plan fun ways to share the novelas with the women in your community.
