Manual para la gestión de salud pública de los incidentes químicos

World Health Organization , (2016)


"La finalidad del presente MANUAL DE LA OMS PARA LA GESTIÓN DE SALUD PÚBLICA DE LOS INCIDENTES QUÍMICOS es proporcionar una panorámica general de los principios y funciones de la salud pública en materia de gestión de incidentes y emergencias químicos. Aunque se brinda información para cada fase del ciclo de una emergencia (prevención, planifi cación y preparación, detección y alerta, y respuesta y recuperación), es bien sabido que la gestión de los incidentes y emergencias químicos requieren un enfoque multidisciplinario y multisectorial y que el sector de la salud pública puede ejercer un papel infl uyente, complementario o directivo en las diversas etapas del proceso de gestión. El público al que nos dirigimos se compone de salubristas y expertos en cuestiones ambientales, así como de cualquiera que tenga interés en la gestión de los incidentes químicos." also available in english and french
