About Health in the Americas+
Health in the Americas + is a new way of viewing the flagship publication of the Pan American Health Organization (PAHO/WHO). Since its creation in 1954, this publication has focused on one of the organization's main mandates, which is to collect and disseminate information on health conditions and trends in the countries and territories of the Americas and the Caribbean. A key way to fulfill this mandate is the publication of Health in the Americas, a comprehensive report dedicated exclusively to monitoring and analyzing the health situation in the Region. This new portal now centralizes access to all information published in Health in the Americas, beginning with the previous edition, which focused on Potentially Avoidable Premature Mortality and now is focused on an Overview of the Region of the Americas in the context of the COVID-19 pandemic and includes new and more interactive ways to view data and compare information in different regions and countries, going back all the way to the first edition, from 1954. We hope you enjoy this portal and return many times.
