Peru assesses medical needs after earthquake:

This article was originally published in Clinica

Executive Summary

The Pan American Health Organization has issued an international appeal for US$605,000 to provide emergency relief, including medical supplies and diagnostic equipment for Peru, following the earthquake that struck the south of the country on June 23. $260,000 will be earmarked for evaluation and emergency repairs of healthcare facilities, supplies of critical medical equipment and portable laboratories, among other things. The cities of Arequipa, Tacna, Moquegua and Ayacucho were worst affected by the 7.9 Richter scale earthquake. The health ministry has launched an epidemiological surveillance programme, amid fears of outbreaks of particularly pneumonia, cholera and diarrhoeal epidemics. It has appealed for $135,000 to help fund the work.
