Virtual Journey through a Safe Hospital

Multimedia Training Program on Hospitals Safe from Disasters (PAHO)

 PAHO/WHO has developed a multimedia training programme on disaster risk reduction and safe hospitals. The Virtual Journey through a safe hospital combines video, 2- and 3-D animation, images and sound to make the learning experience much more versatile and easy to use. The virtual hospital DVD includes a library where support materials – text, videos, PowerPoint presentations, etc. – can be consulted and downloaded, making this an excellent tool for self-study, Internet-based distance learning or classroom use by knowledgeable instructors.

The WHO e-Atlas of disaster risk for the Eastern Mediterranean Region (EMRO)

The e-Atlas uses geographic information systems and various disaster models to assist disaster management decision-makers, particularly those in the Member States of this Region regularly experiencing disasters, to reduce health risks to vulnerable populations due to emergencies and health crises. This tool can be used to help predict the magnitude of a disaster on a specific population, to assess where damage might be the greatest and to forecast specific resources which may be required.
