Health fears for Japan survivors

Concerns rising for residents of tsunami-affected areas living in poor conditions at evacuation centres.

    Concerns are growing for the health of many of the thousands of people now facing weeks or months out of their homes following Japan's earthquake and tsunami.

    Sanitation is becoming a major problem in the crowded evacuation centres and the homeless are suffering from diarrhoea and other illnesses.
