Abstract: A study was conducted at Pumula Clinic in Bulawayo to assess the usefulness of pictorial labeling in increased patient understanding. The results of the study indicate that compliance was significantly improved by the use of pictograms as opposed to written instructions. Such a scheme, if implemented on a national scale, should improve health care in Zimbabwe.
