Thursday, October 30, 2003 - St. Lucia is the pilot country for a Pan American Health Organization (PAHO), funded training workshop, targeted at health care providers stationed at health centres. The workshop, an initiative of the National Emergency Management Organization (NEMO), will take place towards the end of November.

Consultant to the Pan American Health Organization and the National Emergency Management Organization Arturo Lopez, says he is now in discussion with head nurses of the various health centres, on an appropriate and workable plan that would guide the exercise.

“We will design the whole two week training course where participants will be exposed to the basic theoretical concepts of disaster management, their functions during and after an emergency or disaster, and how to write emergency procedures,” Lopez said.

The recommendations emanating from the training workshop, will be submitted to the Pan American Health Organization. It is the intention of PAHO to replicate lessons learnt from this pilot workshop, in other Caribbean countries.
