Plan of action on safe hospitals

Resolution CD50.R15

Ministries of health throughout the Americas called for new efforts to make hospitals disaster-safe, so that they can continue to provide health services when they are urgently needed.

During their Directing Council meeting at Pan American Health Organization (PAHO) headquarters in Washington, D.C., health leaders approved a new regional Plan of Action that includes planning, investment, and inspection systems to ensure that hospitals and other new health facilities are built in accordance with disaster-resilience standards and that the oldest facilities are modernized so that they can keep operating during emergencies.
