However timely the health care response may be, its effect may be nullified if the effort is disorganized or fragmented. This manual holds a framework for a tiered system of care and appropriate techniques carried out as part of a coordinated and rational effort. Aimed at the physician, the paramedic, and the health administrator, this manual provides general guidelines for the organization of health services and technical standards for mass care of disaster victims. While based on the traditional organization of health services in Latin America and the Caribbean, its technical concepts are applicable to developing countries outside the Region as well.
