The Pan American Health Organization and cooperating international and bilateral agencies which provide assistance to other nations have developed a system for rapidly recruiting consultants to disaster relief efforts in cooperation with other international and bilateral aid agencies. Any country that needs this type of technical collaboration should determine the exact consultant requirements such as entomologist, technical officer, sanitarian, or malariologist, and express this need to the PAHO Country Representative so that prompt action can be taken.
