The Virtual Health Library for Disasters incorporates the works of many new partner organizations and consequently offers a much broader variety of information. The Virtual Health Library for Disasters is now truly a global collection. It is the result of a process of consultation and exchange among the disaster and emergency programs of WHO and PAHO, all WHO technical divisions, other United Nations agencies such as UNHCR, UNICEF, the ISDR, the International Committee for the Red Cross, the Sphere Project, NGOs such as OXFAM and national organizations such as Costa Rica's National Emergency Commission.
Thanks to support from these organizations, the new Virtual Disaster Library contains more than 650 scientific and technical documents including the most important works published by these agencies on disasters and emergencies.
It also has an easy-to-use powerful and improved search engine that allows searching by topics, country, keyword, title, publisher or any other word.
