Home Media Center


For more than two decades, PAHO/WHO has produced a wide variety of video presentations that have captured the aftermath of major disasters in this Region, from the 1985 earthquake in Mexico to the 2007 earthquake in Peru.  Other productions have aimed to raise awareness of special issues related to health and emergencies—safe hospitals, the response to Pandemic H1N1 2009 or good donations, for example.  Click on any of the links below to view a program. All programs are also available on DVD. Write to us at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it .
