With the publication of a new print edition of its Disaster Publications Catalog, PAHO/WHO renews its commitment to disseminating, as widely as possible, information on the Organization’s publications, training materials and other information resources on emergencies and disasters. PAHO is nearing its 30th year of working with Member States to prepare for and mitigate the effects of disasters on health. Access to this type of information continues to have tremendous technical and strategic value, both in terms of building capacity among the Region’s health professionals and by advancing political and institutional commitments to disaster reduction. The new English edition of the catalog will be ready by April 2006 and the Spanish version will be ready in February. Both versions have been updated to include all material produced or revised in the last three years.
