Estn las Mujeres y los Nios de Hait Recibiendo Menos Ayuda Tras el Terremoto?
Date:1/24/2010

azadas y las mujeres que amamantan se consideran en mayor peligro de sufrir desnutrición aguda moderada o grave, al igual que las personas mayores.

El peligro de la desnutrición aumenta cuando, debido a los efectos perturbadores de un desastre, las mujeres dejan de amamantar a sus hijos o no logran iniciar lactancia materna de sus bebés recién nacidos.

“Cuando dejan de funcionar los sistemas de abastecimiento de agua y de saneamiento, es aun más importante que las madres amamanten a sus bebés en lugar de darles leche maternizada mezclada con agua que podría estar contaminada” explico la Dra. Chessa Lutter, una especialista en nutrición de la OPS/OMS.

Velzeboer-Salcedo también instó a los trabajadores que prestan asistencia a que estén alertas ante posibles casos de violencia sexual, explotación y abuso.

“Hace falta más concientización y un esfuerzo mayor para empoderar a las mujeres, que son quienes cuidan principalmente a los heridos y las familias en estas trágicas circunstancias”, agregó.

La OPS se estableció en 1902 y es la organización de salud pública más antigua del mundo. Colabora con todos los países de la Región de las Américas para mejorar la salud y calidad de vida de las personas de este continente. Su secretaría actúa además como la Oficina Regional para las Américas de la Organización Mundial de la Salud (OMS).
