The Safe Hospitals Initiative has become a cornerstone of the work of CRID, as has been reflected in the activities that it has undertaken with its strategic partners.
CRID has produced a series of information resources, such as websites and CDs, with publications and technical materials focused on mitigation, with special emphasis on measures needed to ensure that health facilities continue working during and immediately after a disaster.
These resources have been widely disseminated through e-bulletins regularly published by CRID, as well as in their partners and counterparts websites—including agencies that belong to the Latin American Network of Disaster Risk Management Information Centers (RELACIGER). They have also been promoted at gatherings, fora, conferences and other activities where CRID has participated.
CRID continues with its policy of providing free access to all of its products and services, and their continuous updating. To that end, a special section on safe hospitals has been created within the thematic portal on Public Health and Risk Management: http://saludydesastres.crid.or.cr.
