The Haiti Emergency

The WPA is shocked by the catastrophe which struck Haiti. The President is in contact with the WHO leadership. The focal point identified by the WHO for this crisis is Devora Kestel (kestelde@cpc.paho.org).

It is very important to coordinate any efforts with her. The psychiatrists from Latin America who were trained in the WHO-WPA workshop on the mental health consequences of disasters held in Geneva in July 2009 have been alerted. The WPA is ready to invest human and financial resources in this emergency within an effort coordinated with the WHO.
