Guidelines for Response to Earthquakes (OPS/OMS)

One of the unfortunate effects of large-scale disasters is mass casualties; often, first responders don't know what to do with the dead bodies of victims when morgues--if they are even available--fill up. PAHO/WHO has published Management of Dead Bodies after Disasters, a field manual for first responders that presents simple recommendations for non-specialists to manage the recovery, basic identification, storage and disposal of dead bodies following disasters.
In the link below you will find other publications and guidelines that can be useful for dealing with the aftermath of the earthquake in Haiti.
