Emergency Operations Center

Emergency Operations Center

The Pan American Health Organization's Emergency Operations Center (EOC) functions as a centralized location for coordination and control of health-related emergency response activities. PAHO's Organization-wide Disaster Task Force and the Epidemic Alert and Response Task Force operate through the EOC which collects, analyzes, prioritizes, monitors, and disseminates information about health crises or disasters. This intelligence enables health authorities in Member States and the international community to make timely and effective decisions

In non-disaster situations, the EOC monitors and identifies other health crises that may require an international response. The EOC also provides meeting space for inter-divisional planning and monitoring and publishes a weekly e-report of new incidents and updates of ongoing events of concern in the Region.
