Workers´ Health

The Workers' Health team is committed to promoting workers' health equity in the Region of the Americas by providing technical assistance through several preventative approaches to strengthen regulatory frameworks and the leadership of the health sector among Member States; promote workers' health and the development of safe, productive and healthy workplaces; prevent and register diseases, injuries and deaths at work; achieve access to universal health; and support critical economic sectors resulting from the impact they have on workers' health. 

PAHO collaborates with a broad range of work and health stakeholders to implement the Plan of Action on Workers' Health 2015-2025, with an approach on Health in All Policies and responds to national, regional and global priorities for workers' health, as well as to contribute to the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), particularly SDG 1, SDG 3, and SDG 8.
