WASH PRESS: Soluciones de agua, saneamiento e higiene y medidas de prevención y control de infecciones para la preparación y respuesta de los establecimientos de salud en casos de emergencias de salud y desastres

10.12.2021
WASH PRESS focuses on providing technical solutions to meet the water, sanitation and hygiene needs of health facilities during health emergency and disaster preparedness activities or in resource-constrained contexts. The document is the result of a systematic review of numerous technical guidelines, practices and tools from the World Health Organization and other relevant institutions and universities in the sector. In a single tool, it combines the minimum standards and indicators to be met with technical solutions to achieve them, with an emphasis on what needs to be done (algorithms), how to do it (factsheets) and how much is needed (calculation tools). By publishing this document, the Pan American Health Organization aims to facilitate decision-making by those responsible for health facilities and for the planning and implementation of water, sanitation and hygiene measures, as well as immediate and timely action by health and auxiliary staff and, in general, by professionals in the sector. This publication complements the guidance provided in the WASH FIT Health Facility Water, Sanitation and Hygiene Improvement Toolkit, developed by the World Health Organization and the United Nations Children's Fund in 2018.
