PAHO is supporting The Bahamas in the aftermath of hurricane Dorian. PAHO deployed water and sanitation experts and health services experts before Hurricane Dorian struck and has experts in logistics, disease surveillance, coordination, information (data) management, and civil-military cooperation in place in the Bahamas office. PAHO is conducting assessment of needs, and looking at structural damage in health facilities. PAHO is using its extensive experience in emergency preparedness to improve disaster relief operations, setting up the structures to deploy emergency teams to support public health measures. The Bahamas is the first Caribbean country to apply the WHO CICOM international standards to coordinate clinical care in disasters.
