Description

Order code: CD 008

CD Bilingüe

Las instalaciones de salud deben funcionar adecuadamente después del paso de un huracán, para dar una respuesta eficiente a los casos de emergencia médica que comúnmente se presentan. Para ello la administración hospitalaria debe realizar estudios de vulnerabilidad, así como trabajar en la implementación de acciones para mitigar los riesgos en los establecimientos de salud en caso de huracanes.

Este material de capacitación tiene el objetivo de orientar a quienes planifican infraestructuras de salud (administradores hospitalarios, ingenieros, arquitectos, técnicos, etc.), sobre los efectos que los huracanes pueden causar en las instalaciones de salud, así como también servir como instrumento de capacitación y difusión sobre los aspectos básicos de la mitigación de desastres, relacionados con huracanes. El CD incluye presentaciones gráficas en Power Point, guiones de ayuda para el uso de las presentaciones, algunas publicaciones técnicas sobre el tema de mitigación de desastres en instalaciones de salud, y afiches que pueden servir de material de divulgación.

Bilingual CD

Description

Health facilities must continue functioning properly after a hurricane so that they may provide an effective response to the most common medical emergencies caused by them. To achieve this, the hospital administration must conduct vulnerability studies, as well as implement mitigation measures for risk reduction in health facilities in cases of hurricanes.

The purpose of this training material is to guide planners of health infrastructures (hospital administrators, engineers, architects, technicians, etc.) in Latin America and the Caribbean on the effects hurricanes can have on health facilities, as well as to serve as an instrument of training and dissemination of the basic aspects of disaster mitigation, as they relate to hurricanes. It is also hoped that the material will raise awareness in the hospital community and the health sector in general about the elements that contribute to the health facilities' vulnerability during hurricanes.
